(The Hill) Wine enthusiasts could save hundreds of dollars as a result of new federal regulations.
The Department of Energy (DOE) will issue new efficiency standards for wine chillers that advocates say would reduce energy use by as much as 75 percent.
This would cost manufactures about $55 million to comply with, but it could also translate into more than $11 million in consumer savings, or as much as $265 per household, according to DOE estimates.
