Earlier this year, many news stations began reporting on the potential for the government (or an agency of the government) would be preventing the purchase of certain kinds of gas stove tops in the future, or potentially for many kinds of existing gas stove tops. A PDF was recently published on the Federal Register. The Federal Register is the official journal of the federal government of the United States. This journal / register contains government agency rules, proposed rules, as well as public notices. This PDF comes from the Department of Energy.

In accordance with these and other statutory provisions discussed in this
document, DOE proposes new and amended energy conservation standards for consumer conventional cooking products. Per its authority in 42 U.S.C. 6295(h)(2), DOE proposes to remove the existing prescriptive standard for gas cooking tops prohibiting a constant burning pilot light. Instead, for conventional cooking tops, DOE proposes performance standards only, shown in Table I.1 which are the maximum allowable integrated annual energy consumption (“IAEC”) and expressed in kilowatt-hours per year (“kWh/year”) for electric cooking tops and thousand British thermal units per year (“kBtu/year”) for gas cooking tops. The IAEC includes active mode, standby mode, and off mode energy use. These proposed standards for conventional cooking tops, if adopted, would apply to all product classes listed in Table I.1 and manufactured in, or imported into, the United States starting on the date three years after the publication of any final rule for this rulemaking. DOE notes that constant burning pilot lights, which are currently prohibited under the existing prescriptive standard for gas cooking tops, 10 CFR 430.32(j), consume approximately 2,000 kBtu/year. While DOE’s proposal would remove this prescriptive requirement from its regulations, DOE notes that, based on its review of the existing prescriptive standard prohibiting constant burning pilots for gas cooking tops, the proposed performance standards of 1,204 kBtu per year for gas cooking tops would not be achievable by products if they were to incorporate a constant burning pilot.


The link to the federal register PDF as well as two other news sites reporting this information can be found below.

More information regarding certain cases of certain types of stoves can be found on pages 9, 10, and 11 of the PDF included in this article. Also it is important to note that these rules have not been imposed yet as of the writing of this article, so it’s possible they may not even come into effect.
