The Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) website contains this new “MHI Action Center” article and request that industry professionals send the email as a comment below. The Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) is taking a very different stance than MHI. MHARR says that mere delay of the costly and harmful DOE energy rule is not enough. The goal should be to ‘kill’ the DOE effort entirely and send the federal agency back to square one for failing to comply with the law.  Both MHI’s statement and that of MHARR will follow in “We Provide, You Decide” © MHProNews fashion.

Part I below are statements and items from the MHI website.

Part II below is from the MHARR media release dated 3.28.2023.

Part III of today’s report is additional information with more MHProNews Analysis and Commentary.

Part IV of this article is the pivot to the Daily Business News on MHProNews report on manufactured housing industry connected stocks, equities, REITs, and related market report.


Part I. From MHI’s Website on the DOE Energy Rule under the caption: “Join Our Efforts to Delay the Manufactured Housing Energy Efficiency Standards Compliance Date” [Note: Providing this information should not be construed as an endorsement of either MHI nor their suggested ‘action.’ See Part III].

Per MHI is the following.


When MHProNews quotes MHI, it should not be construed as an endorsement of that trade group. 

The Department of Energy (DOE) has published a proposed rulemaking to amend the compliance date for its manufactured housing energy standards to allow the Department additional time to establish enforcement procedures that provide clarity for manufacturers and other stakeholders. Currently, home manufacturers must comply with these standards by May 31, 2023.

It is critical that DOE extends the compliance date for the manufactured housing energy efficiency standards until after the Department’s future enforcement procedures are created and take effect. MHI strongly recommends DOE take this action as without a clear understanding of how the Department intends to enforce these manufactured housing energy standards or how the standards will be evaluated for compliance, it is impossible for the industry to know whether or not its compliance efforts will be found satisfactory to DOE. DOE’s enforcement procedures should be created through robust consultation with the industry to apply the energy efficiency standards to the realities of manufactured home construction. The industry needs time to understand DOE’s enforcement procedures and prepare their operations to ensure compliance with the energy standards.

This proposed rulemaking comes on the heels of MHI’s lawsuit against the DOE and its multi-pronged advocacy strategy to address the problems posed by the rule. MHI is in favor of the standards proposed by the Manufactured Housing Consensus Committee (MHCC), which are currently under consideration by HUD. HUD is expected to issue a notice of proposed rulemaking on its energy standards sometime in June 2023. MHI is also pursuing a legislative solution to make HUD (with the collaboration of the MHCC) the primary regulator for manufactured housing energy standards.

It is critical that DOE hear from all sectors of the manufactured housing industry about the urgent need to delay the manufactured housing energy efficiency standards compliance date. Please join MHI’s efforts and tell DOE that this action will give the industry clarity on how best to comply with the standards and what to expect from DOE’s enforcement of such standards. ##


Next to the statement above is an MHI email. It suggests that industry professionals should add their name, cell, and contact information and then send these comments in response to the DOE request for comment. [Note: Providing this information should not be construed as an endorsement of either MHI nor their suggested ‘action.’ See Part III for more details].

Subject: Manufactured Housing Energy Efficiency Standards Compliance Date Must Be Postponed

MHI Suggested Message Body:

I am writing to share my comments in support of the Department of Energy’s proposal to postpone the compliance date for its new manufactured housing energy efficiency standards. As a professional in the manufactured housing industry, it is critical that DOE postpones the implementation date of the manufactured housing energy efficiency standards until after the Department completes work on establishing compliance and enforcement procedures and those procedures actually take effect.

Without a clear understanding of how DOE will enforce these manufactured housing energy efficiency standards or how the standards will be evaluated for compliance, it is virtually impossible for the industry to know whether or not its compliance efforts will be found satisfactory. To address this uncertainty, it is imperative that DOE delay the compliance date and then engage in rulemaking for test procedures, compliance, and enforcement before the DOE energy standards are implemented. Second, the industry must be given a sufficient amount of time to respond to the DOE’s proposed rulemaking about enforcement and compliance with their feedback and concerns. Finally, DOE must seriously consider the recommendations provided by the industry and address these concerns in its final rule to ensure that what the Department proposes is feasible and will support the continued production of affordable manufactured homes.

While I support and commend the DOE’s decision to amend the compliance date to allow more time to establish enforcement procedures that were not included in the final rule, this action does not address the underlying concerns of the industry regarding these manufactured housing energy efficiency standards. The standards did not take into consideration current construction methods and transportation requirements for manufactured homes. Additionally, they were developed based on site-based construction standards and applied to a performance-based national code. As the nation’s only form of unsubsidized affordable housing, the costs associated with the DOE’s energy standards will increase the costs of manufactured homes, at a time when affordable housing is in high demand, and deprive many low-income and minority homebuyers the dream of homeownership.

The industry needs time to understand DOE’s enforcement procedures and prepare their operations to ensure compliance with the energy standards. For these reasons, I strongly urge DOE to amend the compliance date for the manufactured housing energy efficiency standards until after the Department’s future enforcement procedures take effect.

Thank you. ” ##

DOE Delays Energy Rule – Manufactured Home Industry Must Now Demand Total Revocation of Destructive Regulation


MARCH 28, 2023



                        MHARR TECHNICAL REVIEW GROUP (TRG)

                        MHARR STATE AFFILIATES


FROM:           MHARR



                        DEMAND TOTAL REVOCATION OF  DESTRUCTIVE REGULATION              

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced that its discriminatory and destructive “energy conservation” standards for HUD Code manufactured homes, slated to go into effect on May 31, 2023, will be delayed to an indefinite date in the future pending the development of testing, enforcement, and regulatory compliance procedures (see, Federal Register notice attached).

This desperation move by DOE should not –and must not – result in the industry backing down on its pressure to strike down the DOE energy standards and any related enforcement mechanism in their entirety and to send DOE back to the drawing board on this entire matter, with proper input, consultation and coordination with both HUD and the Manufactured Housing Consensus Committee (MHCC) as required by applicable law.

The delay in the effective date of the energy standards stemming from a corrupted DOE “negotiated rulemaking” process initiated in 2015, effectively concedes the validity of MHARR’s longstanding assertion that DOE’s 2022 final standards could not become effective without a testing, enforcement and compliance mechanism, and that DOE’s final rule is fatally defective because the costs associated with such regulatory compliance – an essential component of any rule — were not included in DOE’s supposed cost-benefit analysis.                                  

The industry’s objective, accordingly – and the objective of the pending litigation brought by the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) – cannot be the mere delay of an illegitimate and destructive rule that would ultimately devastate the manufactured housing market. Rather, the objective should – and must be – the total invalidation and rejection of the rule, either by DOE itself or pursuant to a court order after full litigation on the merits. MHARR, had it been a party to that litigation (notwithstanding the broad and liberal use of MHARR arguments and theories in that case), would have insisted on the final and total invalidation of the 2022 DOE final rule as the ultimate objective of that court action.

Given this situation, MHARR will continue to vigorously monitor the pending litigation and will also file comments in the DOE implementation delay docket calling for the repeal of the 2022 final DOE rule in its entirety and for DOE to go “back to the drawing board” on manufactured housing energy standards in full and proper consultation with HUD and the MHCC, in full compliance with its enabling law. Comments in the delay docket are due by April 24, 2023. MHARR will file its comments soon and will make those comments available for reference by industry members in advance of the comment deadline. MHARR, as always, encourages industry members to file their own written comments.

Part III. Additional Information with More MHProNews Analysis and Commentary

The evidence and common sense reflect the following. MHI has an unfortunate history in the 21st century, and on a key occasion in the 1990s too, of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.  

While MHI arguably filed their lawsuit ‘later’ than they should have, it has nevertheless resulted in a potentially useful pause by the DOE. That pause is arguably because MHI belatedly followed the plan that MHARR advanced in August of 2022, but MHI did so without giving MHARR any credit for that plan.

Touting Public Officials Praising Manufactured Homes, Manufactured Housing Institute Ironically Urges ‘Take Action to Support Cost-Effective MH Energy Efficiency Requirements’ – Facts & Analysis


The article linked above is clear evidence, in MHI’s own words, of their effort to get DOE to change the energy standards rather than kill them entirely. Some 9 months ago, MHProNews exclusively posted this still relevant article below. The linked report laid bare what has been called the ‘sordid history’ of MHI cooperating with DOE to get this rule passed, at times, purportedly without telling their numbers of their own members what the Arlington, VA based MHI was doing. The history of MHI’s steps on the DOE rule is laid out by a former MHI VP in the still-must read report below.


Manufactured Housing Institute Leaders-Lawyers Asked About Explosive Allegations by Nonprofit Veteran on High Profile MH Industry Threat; Exclusive Q&A Claims Downturn Less Than 1 Year Away if MHI Fails


While MHI is urging their readers to merely delay, which when the facts linked and known is an apparently mind-numbingly duplicitous and harmful strategy for independents, MHARR and MHProNews reported on 10.2.2022 that HUD was already working then to get the DOE standards put into place. Meaning, if MHI’s ‘request’ is heeded, the harmful and costly DOE energy rule will still get implemented, only. Later.

MHI’s leaders simply can’t be this incompetent. A careful look at the known facts and history reveals that MHI has for years worked against the interests of manufactured housing industry independent producers, which in turn also harms retailers, communities, and consumers who would be stuck with higher costs for the same sized home. Hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, of potential consumers would be ‘priced out,’ per the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) analysis.

It should be obvious even to MHI ‘educated’ professional that with a ‘climate change’ Democrat in the White House, and a ‘green new deal’ agenda mandate in place across the federal government, that the manufactured housing industry can’t rely on HUD any more than it can rely on the DOE for common sense support when it comes to the manufactured housing energy rule.


Washington D.C. Updates on DOE ‘Energy Assault’ HUD is ‘Already Moving’ on DOE Standards MH Financing MHARR White Paper ‘Validated’ Again and More – MHI Side of Story, Facts & Analysis


The case can be made, especially in the light of the publicly unchallenged by MHI history of MHI’s behavior linked here, that MHI has been engaged in deception and misdirection. MHProNews exclusively exposed the fallacy of MHI’s posturing ‘legislation’ – which went exactly nowhere. Our publication, citing GovTrack and Skopos Labs, demonstrated and predicted some 9 months ago that MHI’s ‘legislation’ had no chance. That prediction came to pass, see that report linked below.


H.R. 7651-Manufactured Housing Affordability and Energy Efficiency Act of 2022, Skopos Labs, GovTrack Reveal Duplicity or Madness of Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) Advocacy Claims


If not for MHARR’s years of steady exposure of MHI’s behavior on this energy rule controversy, the industry could have been hobbled years earlier by the DOE’s burdensome and costly standards. One must keep in mind that MHI is working routinely, and openly, with the competitors of manufactured housing. An apparent MHI insider and whistleblower provided the documented evidence that MHI CEO Lesli Gooch was double dipping, collecting money from MHI while also working for a conventional housing nonprofit on ‘MHI time.’

MHProNews notes that the logical course of action is to kill the DOE Energy Rule, as MHARR has suggested. To merely delay the pain that the DOE energy rule, which is MHI’s apparent stance, would cause the same problems they claim to be fighting to still end up going into place. That MHI position is nonsensical.

Fortunately, MHI, TMHA, and their attorneys have time to stop this apparently oxymoronic “plan” that Part I which cited them extensively said.

As Merriam Webster defines it, “oxymoronic” means something that is “made up of contradictory or incongruous elements.” Let’s hope that MHI-TMHA and their attorneys won’t continue down this oxymoronic path. To help ensure that it doesn’t, MHProNews will continue to follow and report on this issue as warranted.



All too often, part of the premise of the DOE Energy Rule goes largely unchallenged.

Whatever AP may say about this issue in ‘defense’ of climate change, it is also true that scientists are not in lockstep on this hot-button issue.  Several predictions of doom and gloom have come and gone. The Greta Thunberg examples is hardly a one off.

While for political or tactical reasons, MHI-TMHA’s attorneys may avoid this thorny aspect of the DOE energy rule issue for manufactured housing, it is absolutely relevant to taxpayers, affordable housing seekers, investors, those concerned with the ESG related topics, and others.

So, the bottom line for the MHI vs. MHARR on the DOE Energy Rule debate remains as shown above. The linked evidence from MHARR, DOE FOIAs, and other sources indicate that MHI has been working to get the energy rule issue enacted. Furthermore, the Sierra Club lawsuit that brought this to a head reportedly has Warren Buffett and some of his donor allies’ financial fingerprints on it.


There is a strong indication directly from MHI that they are using this lawsuit to delay, but also still implement some version of the DOE energy rule. MHARR’s stance is that it should be killed outright. Make DOE do their jobs properly within the bounds of the law, if they can accomplish that at all. MHARR believes that the rule should be killed for the good of independents, consumers, taxpayers, and others. In essence, MHARR has been fighting not only DOE and federal officials, but the evidence suggests, also MHI.  As noted, MHProNews will continue to report on this issue as events warrant. ###
