This page last reviewed February 23, 2010

In January 2010, US Air Conditioning Distributors agreed to pay $19,500 in penalties; $14,625 to the California Air Pollution Fund and $4,875 to Peralta Community College District, for violating air quality regulations.  An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that US Air Conditioning Distributors failed to properly self-inspect some of their diesel trucks to assure the trucks met state smoke emission standards.  ARB documented violations as they related to the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSIP).  To settle the case, US Air Conditioning Distributors agreed to the $19,500 penalty and to comply with the PSIP and other ARB programs.
