NEMA Premium Lighting Programs
NEMA Premium Electronic Ballast Program
The NEMA Premium Electronic Ballast Program provides the method for identifying the most efficient T8 fluorescent ballasts available in the market and identifies models that are consistent with the Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) specifications for high performance lamps and ballasts, tested in accordance with ANSI C82 Standards.
NEMA Premium Exit Sign Program
The NEMA Premium Exit Sign Program provides the method for identifying efficient and effective models that are consistent with NEMA performance standards and tested in accordance with applicable UL and CSA Standards.
NEMA Premium Motors
The member companies of the NEMA Motor and Generator Section established a NEMA Premium® energy efficiency motors program to provide highly energy efficient products that meet the needs and applications of users and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) based on a consensus definition of "premium efficiency" and use of the NEMA Premium® logo for premium products.
NEMA Premium Transformers
The NEMA Premium Efficiency Transformer Program will help utilities, commercial buildings, and industrial plants incorporate super high-efficiency electrical transformers into their operations. NEMA originally set the standard for the efficiency of various types of distribution transformers with the publication of NEMA TP 1-2002 Guide for Determining Energy Efficiency for Distribution Transformers, which was later adopted by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) as the national energy-efficiency rule for low-voltage dry-type distribution transformers.
