Sacramento CA (4/6/2022) – Winslyn Industries (Winslyn) is a Batavia, Illinois based company that manufactures residential exhaust fans. Winslyn sold or offered for sale range hoods in California, from January 2017 to November 2021.
This case was the result of an internal tip. The California Energy Commission’s (CEC) investigation identified that Winslyn was manufacturing and offering for sale range hoods that were not certified to the Modernized Appliance Efficiency Database System (MAEDbS).
To settle this matter, Winslyn executed a Settlement Agreement with CEC on March 25, 2022, for $19,998.00. The penalty monies are deposited into the Appliance Efficiency Enforcement Subaccount established by SB 454 of 2011 (Pavley). Winslyn has also agreed to a compliance plan to test and certify all models to MAEDbS before continuing to sell in California.
