NEMA Publishes Energy Department Final Rule on Standards and Technical Support Document for Small Electric Motors

The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) published white paper NEMA MGW 1-2013, "The U.S. Department of Energy Small Electric Motor Standards Final Rule and Technical Support Document of March 9, 2010." NEMA MGW 1-2013 covers issues pertaining to the rulemaking for Energy Conservation Standards for Small Electric Motors of March 9, 2010, and related documents. It does not cover the Energy Department's energy conservation standards and test procedures for electric motors, which apply to a much larger set of products. Anyone unsure of the application of the small motor rulemaking to their equipment should review the scope of that rulemaking carefully or contact DOE directly with questions.

NEMA MGW 1-2013 can be viewed on the NEMA site.
