DOE alleged in a Notice of Proposed Civil Penalty that Advance Energy Technologies, Inc. failed to certify walk-in cooler or
freezer (WICFs) components as compliant with the energy conservation standards. DOE regulations require a manufacturer (which includes importers) to submit reports certifying that its products have been tested and meet the applicable energy conservation standards. This civil penalty notice advises the company of the potential penalties and DOE's administrative process, including the company's right to a hearing.
