The U.S. Department of Energy has closed its investigation into the energy efficiency of lighting products manufactured by Habitex Corporation and sold under the Target and Adesso brand names based on test data provided by the companies. The Department requested information from the three companies last month in response to a complaint that these products did not meet the Department’s energy efficiency standards for torchieres. Responding promptly to the Department’s inquiry, the companies provided test data showing that these products did not meet the Energy Policy and Conservation Act’s definition of torchiere and, as a result, did not violate the Department’s energy efficiency standard for torchieres. Accordingly, the Department has closed this investigation.
