The Energy Independence and Security Act and What It Means To You

On December 19, 2010, commercial and industrial motor manufacturers and importers raised efficiencies to the NEMA Premium®† levels for all general purpose motors up to 600 volts, from 1 to 200 horsepower, in NEMA frame sizes. Additional categories of motors were raised to energy efficient levels.

What does this mean for your business?
• The implementation of NEMA Premium®† and the elimination of the corresponding energy efficiency standards has removed models in both stock and configured categories.
• All customers, whether OEM, reseller or end-user need to comply.
• OEMs may require 3rd party certification of their equipment through UL® / CSA®.
• End-user will see first cost go up, but will benefit from life cycle reduction in energy costs.

We make the transition EASY
