Energy savings from high efficiency motors

Synopsis 

Energy efficiency improvements of up to 5 per cent are possible if failed electric motors are replaced with high efficiency models. High efficiency motors are more expensive than standard motors but typically demonstrate good return on investment in the small motor range (up to 185kW). Over a 10-year operating period for a motor, the purchase price represents only about two percent of the total motor installation and operating costs. Even a small improvement in motor operating efficiency can produce significant energy and cost savings.
