AB 383 was introduced last Tuesday 3/23 in the Nevada Assembly. It opens NRS 701 - Energy Policy and pertains to the adoption of standards for energy efficiency appliances - prohibiting the sales, lease OR installation of any appliances that are not in compliance. The installation portion is very solidly written to exclude any contractor from installing appliances obtained from out of state that are not in compliance.
It mentions many commercial kitchen appliances such as stoves, commercial coolers and dishwashers. It also mentions other electronic systems including computers, monitors, electric vehicle charging stations, etc.
The bill addresses items a lot of Nevada facility managers have or use, but wouldn't require us to get rid of any of our equipment - just to buy the appropriately rated items moving forward.
I feel that this bill is very important for FMs in Nevada to know and to understand. Even if you do not have equipment currently that qualifies, you may move into a job that does.
This bill has just been introduced and is now in committee (as of 3/25/21), but a vote is likely in the future when it could become law.
I encourage you to learn more about this proposed legislation.
