TEE-0025 - In the Matter of LG Electronics, Inc.

This Decision and Order considers an Application for Exception filed by LG Electronics, Inc. (LG) seeking exception relief from the provisions of 10 C.F.R. Part 430, Energy Conservation Program for Consumer Products: Energy Conservation Standards for Refrigerators, Refrigerator-Freezers and Freezers (Refrigerator Efficiency Standards). In its exception request, LG asserts that the firm would suffer a gross inequity if required to adhere to the Refrigerator Efficiency Standards, codified at 10 C.F.R. § 430.32. If LG’s Application for Exception were granted, LG would receive exception relief from the energy efficiency standard applicable to a new automatic defrost refrigerator-freezer, with bottom mounted freezer and through-the-door ice service. LG proposes to manufacture and market this appliance. As set forth in this Decision and Order, we have concluded that LG’s Application for Exception should be granted.
