Newair, LLC (Newair) is a Cypress, California, based company that manufactures wine coolers. Newair sold or offered for sale wine coolers in California, from July 2015 to September 2018.

This case was the result of an industry complaint. The Energy Commission's investigation process identified that Newair was manufacturing and offering for sale wine coolers that were not certified to the Modernized Appliance Efficiency Database System (MAEDbS).

To settle this matter, Newair executed a Settlement Agreement with the Energy Commission on August 23, 2019, for $285,458.00. The penalty monies are deposited into the Appliance Efficiency Enforcement Subaccount established by SB 454 of 2011 (Pavley). Newiar has also agreed to a compliance plan to certify all models to MAEDbS before continuing to sell in California.
