2017 Case Settlements

To ensure the people of California receive the cost savings and environmental benefits of the Commission's energy and water efficiency regulations, and to support a fair market place, the Commission established a comprehensive enforcement program. The program seeks to aggressively enforce appliance efficiency standards through product testing, engagement with manufactures and retailers, education, issuance of penalties and other enforcement actions.

On this page you will find summaries of cases settled in 2016 through the Commission's mutual settlement program and those cases resolved in administrative and civil proceedings. Please note that each case is different with a different set of facts, so prior settlements are not necessarily indicative of future settlements.

Public Resources Code section 25402.11 and Title 20 California Code of Regulations (section 1609) provide the Commission's authority for imposing penalties for violations of the appliance efficiency standards and set forth factors to consider when determining an appropriate penalty. Regulated entities are encouraged to actively monitor all product lines to ensure compliance with the state's energy and water efficiency standards.
