Energy Efficiency and Premium Efficient Motors

On December 19, 2007, the Energy Independance and Security Act of 2007 (EISA) was signed into law. A critical component of the act was increasing the energy efficiency of electric motors. As part of EISA, general purpose motors manufactured after December 19, 2010 had to match or exceed National Electric Manufacturers Association (NEMA) Premium® efficiecy levels.

Western Belting can assist you in saving money by replacing a standard efficiency motor with a new Premium Efficient Motor. We can also assist you in identifying and procuring a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD). Soft starters can reduce the load on the motor and increase energy efficiency.

Western Belting can help you increase energy efficiency on existing drives by replacing a V-belt drive with a synchronous Gates Poly Chain® GT® Carbon Drive™.

Xcel Energy Motor Rebate Program

Xcel Energy currently has rebates in place for buying new 1-500 HP motors or upgrading from existing low-efficiency motors.

"Motors are expensive because 98% of your motor’s cost is energy to run the motor; therefore, a hasty decision or doing nothing has operational cost implications."

XCel Energy's website has more information about the benefits of upgrading to a premium efficiency electric motor, what rebates are currently offered, and how to qualify.
