Biden Admin to Revisit Energy Efficiency Regulations for Manufactured Homes

Prompted by a court order, the Biden Administration is revising 30-year-old energy efficiency rules for manufactured and mobile homes. These revisions affect windows, insulation, heating, and cooling systems, and have prompted debate over whether they will increase the price of manufactured homes. Advocates argue that energy savings and higher resale values would offset increased cost.

Congress has been attempting to build on existing requirements for over a decade. In 2007, it passed a law that handed the Department of Energy a 2011 deadline to release updated efficiency standards for manufactured homes. However, the proposal was withdrawn two administrations later and it never came to fruition.
