AEP Ohio Offers Motor Rewinds

March 27, 2015 - AEP Ohio announced the Emotor Rewind Pilot Program that promotes energy efficient rewinds for small to large companies in the industrial/manufacturing sector and provides incentives to customers and motor service centers. The program covers three-phase induction motors rated from 300 to 5,000 HP and is expected to achieve annual energy savings of 5,900 kWh to 116,000 kWh, depending on the motor size. An efficient motor rewind also provides for cooler operation of the motor resulting in a longer motor life. AEP Ohio customers located in Ohio will receive $2 per HP and certified motor service centers will receive $1 per HP.

“Quality motor repair offers opportunities for significant energy savings and reliability benefits,” said Kitt Butler, senior program manager, motors and drives, Advanced Energy. “Having a utility like AEP Ohio recognize and reward quality motor repair is a giant step in the right direction. We are very pleased to be a part of that.”

“According to the U.S. Department of Energy, over half of all electrical energy consumed in the United States is used by electric motors,” said Richard Sullivan, PE CEM CEP, principle coordinator for AEP Ohio’s Custom Energy Efficiency Program. “We saw the opportunity to help the manufacturing/industrial sector reduce inefficient energy consumption as well as its carbon footprint.”
