ENERGY STAR has provided an update on their review of the recently released new score models.
You may recall that there are three phases to the review period: gathering feedback, analyzing the models, and communicating the results. ENERGY STAR has completed the first phase and received many comments from a wide variety of stakeholders. ENERGY STAR is now well-underway in the second phase of analyzing each new model to investigate the feedback stakeholders shared. They anticipate finishing the analysis — and resuming ENERGY STAR certification — on a rolling basis.
It is not certain how long each analysis will take, but ENERGY STAR states their goal is to complete at least two models in January. We will keep you updated as we know more about timing and which models will be completed first.
