This page last reviewed July 12, 2010

In April 2010, Electric Motor Shop agreed to pay $1,500 in penalties; $1,125 to the California Air Pollution Fund and $375 to Peralta Community College District, for violating air quality regulations.  An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that Electric Motor Shop 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, Electric Motor Shop agreed to the $1,500 penalty and to comply with the PSIP and other ARB programs.
