Congressman Josh Brecheen Introduces Small Business Ceiling Fan Manufacturer Protection Act

Washington, D.C. (Dec. 14th) – Congressman Josh Brecheen introduced the Small Business Ceiling Fan Manufacturer Protection Act, which would combat a damaging proposed rule from the Department of Energy (DOE) that could place certain ceiling fan manufacturers out of business.

“Biden’s Department of Energy should be focused on ensuring American energy independence, instead of pursuing a radical, green agenda that will crush small businesses,” said Congressman Josh Brecheen. “This bill is needed to ensure that DoE cannot act any further on this proposed rule.”

Breitbart’s Bradley Jaye wrote an exclusive report on the bill, which you can read here.


On June 22, 2023 the Department of Energy announced a proposed rule that would amend energy conservation standards for ceiling fans.

Specifically, this proposed rule would decrease the maximum energy consumption permissible for large diameter and belt-driven ceiling fans, thus raising costs by as much as $4.8 million on small businesses. This increase in costs will inevitably be passed on to American families.

It would require ceiling fan manufacturers to completely redesign their products to remain in compliance with this regulation. DOE predicts that for some small businesses, compliance with this rule would cost more than its yearly revenues.
