The Department of Energy says electric motor systems consume 23 percent of the electricity used in the U.S. Upgrading to energy-saving motors could save over 5,800 gWh of electricity and keep nearly 80 million metric tons of carbon out of the atmosphere over the next 10 years.
It's not unusual for motors to consume 70-90% of the energy in industrial applications. Gexpro's solutions of high-efficiency motors can slash industrial energy costs, while actually improving reliability and performance.
Together with energy efficient motors, today's intelligent drives can significantly reduce the total energy cost in an industial facility. Look to the adjustable frequency drive to complete the system, rather than just focusing on reducing motor energy consumption.
