  • While its February 2023 proposed rule would have made 50% of gas stoves on the market ineligible, the finalized rule will only impact 3% of gas stoves and 23% of electric stoves.
  • The finalized rule will take effect in 2028 and is projected to save consumers $1.6 billion over 30 years on their utility bills.
