CEE High Efficiency Residential Swimming Pool Initiative

Date Published

February 2, 2017


The primary goal of the Initiative is to promote the purchase and proper installation of high efficiency swimming pool equipment in order to achieve energy savings in both new and existing residential swimming pools across the United States and Canada. In pursuing this goal, the Initiative focuses first on the largest energy savings opportunity within residential swimming pools, namely replacing comparatively inefficient single speed pool pumps with higher efficiency multi or variable speed pumps. Although pumps are the first area of focus under Initiative, the Initiative is structured to identify and support additional energy savings opportunities that exist within pool systems, including those associated with pool timers, pool cleaners / vacuums, pool heaters and pool covers.
