NEMA Announces Premium Efficiency Program for Low-Voltage Distribution Transformers
The transformers covered under the new program are typically used in commercial and industrial applications. However, some electric utilities are considering the NEMA program for their commercial and industrial energy-efficiency rebate programs. The adoption of this program will not only reduce energy consumption, but will also significantly reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
To date, seven major manufacturers have committed to providing NEMA Premium Efficiency Transformers to the marketplace. They include Eaton Electrical, Federal Pacific, GE Energy Industrial Solutions, Hammond Power Solutions, ONYX Power, Schneider Electric, and Siemens Industry, all NEMA members.
