Join Baldor in a webinar as we discuss the impacts on OEM’s and compare EISA 2007 to the Integral Horsepower Rule.

The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) and a coalition of energy advocates submitted a petition to the Department of Energy to increase efficiency in industrial electric motors not covered under the latest small motor rule. A Final Rule was issued in March, 2014 which will broaden the scope of coverage left behind from the Energy Independence & Security Act (EISA) of 2007. The Integral Horsepower Rule will go into effect June 1, 2016 and supersede the EISA 2007 laws.

The Integral Horsepower Motor rule will replace the current EISA laws requiring the majority of 1 – 500 Horsepower (and equivalent Kilowatt) motors to meet Premium Efficiency levels in accordance with NEMA MG 1, Table 12-12. By meeting premium efficiency levels, the coverage will allow compliance and enforcement much easier. The rule is particularly important to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) producing equipment with exempt motors under EISA 2007.
