DOE settled enforcement actions against Utility Refrigerator, True Manufacturing, and Victory Refrigeration for distributing commercial refrigeration equipment in the United States that do not meet applicable energy conservation standards. 

As a part of the settlement, Victory Refrigeration paid a civil penalty of $1,600 after manufacturing and distributing 8 units of commercial refrigerator-freezer model RFS-1D-S1-EW-PT-HD.  True agreed to a $36,400 civil penalty after manufacturing and distributing 182 units of commercial refrigerator models TCGG-72 and TCGG-72S.  Utility Refrigerator agreed to pay a civil penalty of $200 after manufacturing and distributing 1 unit of commercial refrigerator model PT-R-75-SS-3S-3S-N.  DOE found that the models did not comply with the maximum permissible rates of energy consumption.
