Efficient motors


The highest percentage of electricity consumption in the industries is for motive power except for very few industries like cement and ceramic industries. Motors are imported from all over the world many of which are not efficient, yet due to the low cost, industries go for them as the initial investment is low compared to that of high efficient motors. Nevertheless, when comparing the life cycle cost these pose a significant problem to the industries. It is also a burden to the power sector due to higher energy losses. Through this programme, it is expected to motivate industries to replace existing inefficient motors with high efficient motors. It is expected to save 248.2 GWh by implementing this programme.
