[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.63.134.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Once the Energy Efficient Appliances N.A.P. is active, upgrade all your appliances with eco upgrades. Get fined for not meeting N.A.P. standards.
What happens when the bug occurs? My fines increase despite every effort to upgrade every object on the property the is up-gradable. This is in Evergreen Harbor in an off-the-grid home.
What do you expect to see? I expect that when I upgrade my appliances that the fines will stop. Or, if I am failing inspection that something more specific as to what I am doing wrong will appear.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? No

I'm not sure what images would be helpful here.

We spoke to all Eco Inspectors, and they have agreed that they should NOT be charging the Energy efficient appliances fine if your appliances are fully upgraded to be super efficient and amazing. I mean all that work and still get fined? Not in this house!

Fixed in Patch 1.69.57/ 1.35

If you're still experiencing this issue, please create a new thread.

The same thing is happening to me. Every single item which can be given an eco-friendly upgrade has been given one.

 

No industrial footprint upgrades (eg. fuel cells) have been given.

I just got fined for not meeting the Green Gardening even though I have a garden and have been gardening since the wild soy plants were able to be harvested.

Yeah, I have the same issue with green gardening! My sim literally has a farm and they say I am not complying. Get my sim gains influence points when she gardens. It is really annoying.

Hi,

 

this happens to me all the time as well and not only in the new world. It has happened in Willow Creek as well now. All of my objects are upgraded to be eco-friendly but I still get fined every time. I tried it with lots that have the "off-the-grid" trait and with lots that don't have it and it still happens every time.

I think, there are two different Inspektors. In German language, they have diffent name and behave different. The one who comes independently on tuesday and is called N.A.P. inspektor, controlles und rates the N.A.P. tasks and imposes the punishment. 

 

The other eco inspector, i can call bei phone an costs nearly 200 §, does .... nothing. 

 

Both inspector explain ... nothing, what is wrong or what i could do better.

What happens when the bug occurs? I keep getting fines for not being in compliance with Eco-Friendly appliances N.A.P.
What do you expect to see? Not get fined or have clearer instructions with this pack if I'm supposed to do this a specific way.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

I just installed the Eco Lifestyle  Expansion. I have the Green Aplliances N.A.P and I keep getting fines because it says I'm "Not in compliance" I have wind turbines and solar panels, along with a dew collector. I tried removing all appliances the used power or water. I've tried what other people have suggested and upgraded all those appliances with eco-parts and still get fined. I have resorted to just repealing the N.A.P so I could stop getting fined! Is this a bug with the new update or did it just not install correctly, I don't know. HALP!
