In 2007 Congress passed the Energy Independence and Security Act, which increased the level of the efficiency standards on existing covered electric motors and added efficiency standards for additional types of electric motors manufactured on or after December 19, 2010. In February of 2011, NEMA revised the Premium Efficiency Motor tables for medium motors by adding efficiency values for 8-pole premium efficiency motors.
