Examining the Biden Administration’s Gas Stoves Rule

The U.S. Department of Energy recently proposed a rule to impose significant new energy-efficiency standards on gas stoves. According to analysis by the conservative Heritage Foundation, the new rule would require gas stoves to consume 32% less energy, meaning more than 90% of gas cooktops would need to be redesigned by 2027. DOE estimates the rule would cost consumers an extra $32 million annually. 5/9/2023
