First in Energy Efficiency Since 1920The history of energy efficiency in industrial motors is really the story of Baldor Electric Company. For the past eight decades, Baldor has led the industry in developing products that deliver greater performance and reliability while using less electricity. From the company’s founding in the 1920s through today, Baldor has introduced efficiency enhancing advancements one after another. In fact, many of the advancements initiated by Baldor have later been adopted as industry standards.
The issue of energy efficiency for electric motors and drives is becoming increasingly relevant as electricity costs continue to rise.

Baldor can supply NEMA 3-phase motors that meet the increased energy efficiency demands required by the Energy Independence and Security Act. This legislation, which became mandatory on December 19, 2010, established stringent new efficiency standards for a broad range of 3-phase motors, including explosion proof, severe duty and brake motors, with horsepower ratings from 1 through 500 HP. Baldor also offers motors complying with the DOE Small Motor Rule that went into effect March 9, 2015 and is constantly working on our product portfolio to ensure compliance to government regulations in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and other countries where standards are set for motor efficiency and electrical safety.
