Electric Motor Warehouse Case Settles for $10,000

This page last reviewed: August 15, 2019

Electric Motor Warehouse (EMW) is a Burton, Michigan, based company that sells residential pool pump and motor combinations (pool pumps). EMW sold 127 pool pumps in California, from July 2015 to February 2019.

This case was the result of an internal tip. The Energy Commission's investigation process identified that EMW was offering for sale pool pumps that did not meet the design standard and were not certified to the Modernized Appliance Efficiency Database System (MAEDbS).

To settle this matter, EMW executed a Settlement Agreement with the Energy Commission on August 8, 2019, for $10,000.00. The penalty monies are deposited into the Appliance Efficiency Enforcement Subaccount established by SB 454 of 2011 (Pavley). EMW has also agreed to a compliance plan to implement measures to restrict the sale of single speed products for use in residential pool applications in California.
