Never mind that America is dealing with extreme weather causing power outages or that brownouts have been taking place due to energy grid problems. Biden is plowing full steam ahead with his policies that will take out roughly 95% of the portable generator market.
Ban it all Biden is at it again.
President Biden isn’t even giving manufacturers a couple of years to retool. The rule is already on the books and will be imposed 180 days from June 20, 2023, when the rule draft was published for public comment.
The rule is only giving manufacturers six months to resign their generators, and old ones will be illegal to manufacture.
A proposed Consumer Product Safety Commission rule limits the amount of carbon monoxide a product can emit, with the commission admitting that 95 percent of portable gas generators on the market cannot comply with its new standard. As a result, industry leaders say, the rule will prompt widespread generator shortages, as manufacturers only have six months to design generators that meet the proposed regulation. That process normally takes years.
The regime is claiming that the standards will stop carbon monoxide deaths.
More from the Free Beacon:
Still, the Biden administration is looking to adopt more stringent carbon monoxide emission caps from Underwriters Laboratories, an international product safety company. The Consumer Product Safety Commission says its rule is necessary due to low compliance with voluntary standards in the gas generator market—it estimates that just 30 percent of models comply with the Portable Generator Manufacturers’ Association standard. The association, however, says roughly 75 percent of the market is compliant with its standards.
The public comment fro the proposed generator rule ended on June 20 and the final version will be draft that will got into effect 180 days after its approval.
Next up? Hot water heaters.
The Biden administration is getting ready to regulate hot water heaters forcing Americans to buy very expensive units.
Leave us alone.
These products already exist in the free market. Consumers should decide whether the upfront cost of a heat-pump water heater is worth the possible long term savings. In many cases, the monthly savings never make up for the upfront cost of the equipment. https://t.co/I0j36USrr4
