The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recently amended the current energy conservation standards for distribution transformers. The new standard is expected to reduce energy losses in low-voltage dry-type distribution transformers by an average of 18%, according to the DOE (http://www1.eere.energy.gov/). These standards will come into effect the first of January 2016, and the DOE projects savings up to $12.9 billion in total costs to consumers and 3.63 quadrillion Btu of energy over a 30 year period.
Hammond Power Solutions (HPS) supports this change, and the environmental benefits society will receive. HPS will be in a position to support the migration to the new higher-efficiency designs that is anticipated to begin the latter half of 2015.
