West Coast Spas is a Woodburn, Oregon, based company who manufactures portable electric spas. From July 2015 to April 2017, West Coast Spas sold or offered for sale 31 portable electric spas in California.

This case was discovered through California Energy Commission (Energy Commission) staff research. The Energy Commission's investigation process identified West Coast Spas manufacturing and offering for sale portable electric spas that were not certified to the Appliance Efficiency Database (Database).

To settle this matter, West Coast Spas executed a settlement agreement with the Energy Commission on January 9, 2018, for $31,000.00. The penalty monies are deposited into the Appliance Efficiency Enforcement Subaccount established by SB 454 of 2011(Pavley). West Coast Spas has also agreed to a compliance plan to test and certify each basic model to the Database before continuing to sell into California.
