Motors are the power behind fans and pumps in various commercial systems. Replacing a motor with a more efficient option can produce significant savings in energy costs that can quickly pay back the purchase process.

variable speed drive (vsd) rebates

​Many motors operate at a constant speed, accounting for 50% of electric costs for most industrial customers and 10% for large office buildings. Variable speed drives (VSDs) match a motor’s speed to its load, cutting energy use and reducing wear and tear on the motor and its related components.

Tailored rebates are available for a range of equipment that benefits from VSDs, including:

  • chilled water pumps
  • domestic water pumps
  • HVAC fans​
  • air compressors
  • refrigeration compressors
  • refrigeration fans
  • pool pumps
rebates for replacing motors

​When replacing an existing motor, consider a premium efficiency motor, which can produce significant savings in annual electricity costs and quickly pay back the purchase price.

  • select a motor that meets the performance requirements of the motor system
  • specify a new motor with a full-load speed no greater than the motor it replaces

energy tips
  • Install a variable speed drive (VSD) to reduce motor energy use by up to 75%.
  • Keep drive belts at their proper tension, clean fan blades, check pump impeller blades for wear, replace air filters regularly, maintain good ventilation, and inspect for increased vibration or power supply problems.
  • For maximum motor performance and efficiency, lubricate drive trains bearings, chains and gear.
  • VSDs work well on large motors that can operate for several hours at reduced speed and motors with loads that vary from day to night or seasonally.
