Solaray: Order (2016-CE-16031)

February 1, 2017

DOE ordered The Solaray Corporation to pay a $8,000 civil penalty after finding Solaray had failed to certify that certain central air conditioners and heat pumps comply with the applicable energy conservation standards. The Order adopted a Compromise Agreement, which reflected settlement terms between DOE and Solaray.

DOE alleged in a September 6, 2016 Notice of Proposed Civil Penalty that Solaray had failed to certify certain central air conditioners and heat pumps as compliant with the applicable 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. The civil penalty notice advised the company of the potential penalties and DOE's administrative process, including the company's right to a hearing.
