EA-1463: Finding of No Signficant Impact

Energy Efficient Performance Requirements for New Federal Commercial and Residential Buildings

Based on an Environmental Assessment (EA), DOE/ EA–1463, DOE has determined that the adoption of the new energy efficiency standards ‘‘Energy Efficiency Standard for New Federal Commercial and High-Rise Multi-Family Residential Buildings’’ (10 CFR Part 433) and ‘‘Energy Efficiency Standard for New Federal Low-Rise Residential Buildings’’ (10 CFR Part 435) would not be a major Federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment within the meaning of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969. Therefore, an environmental impact statement (EIS) is not required, and the Department is issuing this finding of no significant impact (FONSI)
