Meco Motors Helps You Meet Energy Compliance Standards
Electric motor systems account for 23% of all electricity consumed in the United States and 70% of all electrical energy in the manufacturing sector. The energy required to operate all electric motors erupted a staggering 26 billion metric tons of CO2
emissions into the atmosphere in 2004—and this is expected to grow another 65% by 2030.
The Energy Independence and Security Act
of 2007 (EISA) was enacted to introduce more energy efficiency and decrease greenhouse gas emissions. This federal law, which took effect on December 19, 2010, requires electric motors,
lighting, buildings, appliances, and power transmission grids manufactured in the United States to meet higher efficiency standards by December 2010. Click here

Call Meco Motors for more information about energy-efficient electric motors and about which motors must meet new NEMA
efficiency levels. We can help you with your EISA compliance plan.
