In response to new legislation that takes effect in December, Motor Incentives will be removed from the Smart $aver Prescriptive program.
In 2007, the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) was signed into law. One of the purposes of the act is to increase the efficiency of products and buildings in the U.S., including the industrial motors used in HVAC and refrigeration systems. Motors that are now considered energy efficient will be deemed “standard” come Dec. 19, 2010, when the legislation takes effect.
