According to the U.S. Department of Energy, more than 40 million commercial and industrial motors are in use in the United States today. Companies like yours can see significant reductions in overall energy used—and dollars spent—with even small increases in motor efficiency offered by NEMA Premium® motors. Nidec Motor Corporation’s U.S. MOTORS® brand NEMA Premium motors can help you achieve your cost-saving goals.

In fact, an impact study by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy estimated that if all motors in the United States were upgraded to NEMA motors, the annual energy savings could reach nearly 10,000 gigawatts of electricity every year. That’s equal to the power generated by three coal-burning power plants!

NEMA Premium standard motors can significantly reduce your energy usage and costs—offering fast payback and long-term savings. U.S. MOTORS brand NEMA Premium electric motors meet the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA) regulation requirements that changed mandatory efficiency levels for three-phase electric motors up to 600 volts. These EISA-compliant motors include:

• Open Drip-Proof (ODP) motors
• UNIMOUNT® Totally Enclosed Fan Cooled (TEFC) motors
• 841 PLUS® TEFC motors
• TEFC Cooling Tower Duty motors.

With Nidec Motor Corporation’s U.S. MOTORS brand NEMA motors, you will both meet EISA requirements and cut your monthly energy costs. If you can’t find a NEMA motor in our catalog that works for your company, our engineering teams can custom-design one to suit your needs.
