Higher-Efficiency Motors Mean Big Savings and Better Reliability
NEMA Premium® labeled electric motors will assist purchasers to optimize motor systems efficiency, reduce electrical power consumption and costs, and improve system reliability. It is estimated that the NEMA Premium® efficiency motor program would save 5,800 gigawatts of electricity. This translates to preventing nearly 80 million metric tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere over the next 10 years — equivalent to keeping 16 million cars off the road.
The Motor and Generator Section of the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) established the NEMA Premium program for four main reasons:
– Electric motors have a significant impact on the total energy operating cost for industrial, institutional and commercial buildings.
– Electric motors vary in terms of energy efficiency. The NEMA Premium program will assist purchasers identify higher efficient motors that will save them money and improve system reliability.
– NEMA Premium labeled electric motors will assist users to optimize motor systems efficiency in light of power supply and utility deregulation issues.
– NEMA Premium motors and optimized systems will reduce electrical consumption thereby reducing pollution associated with electrical power generation.
