Redfern Enterprises Incorporated (Redfern) is a Las Vegas, Nevada based company that manufactures plumbing fittings. Redfern sold or offered for sale showerheads in California, from April 2018 to April 2022.
This case was the result of an investigation performed by California Energy Commission (CEC) staff. CEC’s investigation and testing process identified that Redfern was manufacturing and offering for sale showerheads that did not meet the efficiency standard, failed the marking requirement, and were not certified to the Modernized Appliance Efficiency Database System (MAEDbS).
To settle this matter, Redfern executed a Settlement Agreement with CEC on October 4, 2022, for $5,127.00. The penalty monies are deposited into the Appliance Efficiency Enforcement Subaccount established by SB 454 of 2011 (Pavley). Redfern has also agreed to a compliance plan to redesign the non-compliant models to meet the efficiency standard, add the appropriate marking, and certify all models to MAEDbS before continuing to sell in California.
