NEMA Analysis of the Energy Policy Act of 1992: The Scope of Electric Motors Subject to Efficiency Standards on October 24, 1997
The Energy Policy Act of 1992 (EPAct) covering the efficiency levels of general purpose industrial motors became effective October 24, 1997. This brochure presents information on the U.S. Department of Energy's interpretation of the 1992 Energy Policy Act and DOE's position on the scope of products covered and non-covered (exempt) by the legislation. Motor users and OEMs can refer to the information to determine whether the motors they purchase will be covered by EPAct and therefore must meet the standard energy-efficiency levels.
