Making Pools and Hot Tubs More Energy Efficient

There are almost 2 million residential pools and another 50,000 commercial pools in California. And approximately one out of every 10 Golden State residences has a spa or hot tub (over a million in total).

It takes a LOT of energy to run the pumps, filtration systems and heaters that make them clean and comfortable. California is looking at setting new standards that will help consumers save money on their utility bills and what happens in California, could become the de facto standard nationwide since one of every eight consumers resides in the Golden State.

The latest edition of the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) series “California is Setting the Standards: A Continuing Series on the California Energy Commission Process” about the consideration of energy efficiency standards for 15 separate products that could have nationwide impact is now available at http://switchboard.nrdc.org/blogs/mwaltner/california_is_setting_the_stan.html.
