As this came up in another thread, I am clarifying this for our California Denizens. This is pertaining directly to Title 20. Information gathered from (Energy Code Ace) Requirements Title 20 Section 1605.3(v)(6) requires workstations, rack-mounted workstations, mobile workstations, small-scale servers and high expandability computers manufactured on or after January 1, 2018 to meet all of the four following criteria: 1. Be powered by an internal power supply that meets or exceeds the standards in Title 20, Table V-9 (see below) or an external power supply that meets efficiency level VI as described in the International Efficiency Marking Protocol for External Power Supplies Version 3.0 (IEMP) 2013; Title 20, Section 1605.3(v) 2. Incorporate Energy-Efficient Ethernet functionality; 3. Transition connected displays into sleep mode within 15 minutes of user inactivity and 4. Transition the computer into either the computer sleep mode or computer off mode within 30 minutes of user inactivity. If the transition is to a computer sleep mode, that sleep mode shall either: a. Be a computer sleep mode as described in ACPI as S3 or b. Consume power less than or equal to 10 + 0.03 * C, where C is the system memory capacity in gigabytes minus 32 gigabytes (see Table V-6 in Title 20 Section 1605.3(v)) Small-scale servers and rack-mounted workstations are not required to comply with #4 above (see Title 20 Section 1605.3(v)(6)(A - D)) So, basically, my boss did not give me ALL the information. I think that the Retro Computing Community of California will be largely unaffected by this. Be careful selling power supplies. Make sure they conform to this code. Thanks for making me search it out @cbmeeks (which I do mean 🙂 )
