I note this here primarily because of one thing: While noting that the DOE hasn't increased a single appliance et al energy standard in 6 years - in fact, they've tried to cancel some from the 1990s - now that they have come out with some proposed efficiency increases in utility distribution equipment, even the utilities think they are not enough.

Yet another piece of evidence - if one was needed - that the Federal government has been run by diehard ideologues who are even out of touch with the companies that usually buy them.
