CEA Chides California Energy Regulations
The Consumer Electronics Association is gearing up for another round of fighting with the state of California over energy regulations for consumer electronics. The group came out strongly against a new round of regulatory standards.
"California should not distinguish itself as the enemy of innovation. We continue to be concerned about how regulations are being justified and supported by the California Energy Commission,” Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of CEA, said as part of the announcement.
“The CEC’s approach, which focuses on setting artificial limits on consumer products, threatens to stifle innovation and economic growth within an industry already on the vanguard of energy efficiency. CEA supports programs defining energy usage consistently and conveying such information to consumers.
