Date Introduced 03/08/2019

The bill updates and adopts standards for water efficiency and
energy efficiency that apply to a list of consumer and commercial

appliances and other products. The standards are based on state standards,
federal Energy Star and WaterSense specifications, and industry standards
in most cases or, where a standard is not incorporated by reference, the
standard is specified by statute.
The standards apply to new products sold or installed in Colorado
and are phased in over a period of 3 years, with general service lamps
covered beginning in 2020, air compressors and portable air conditioners
covered beginning in 2022, and all other listed products covered
beginning in 2021. The bill also keeps in place the water efficiency
standards on certain products that were added to the Colorado statutes in
2014. The sale of a noncomplying product after the effective date of the
applicable standard is defined as a deceptive trade practice under the
Colorado Consumer Protection Act.
The executive director of the department of public health and
environment is directed to collect and publish the standards that are
incorporated by reference. The executive director is also authorized, but
not required, to adopt rules incorporating more recent versions of
standards or test methods in order to maintain or improve consistency
with other state or federal agency standards, subject to a one-year grace
period between adoption and enforcement of any new or amended
