Improve Motor Efficiency with Variable Speed Drives

​Installing variable speed drives (VSDs) or variable frequency drives (VFDs) on existing motors allows their operation to be continually tuned to actual demand, resulting in substantial energy savings. ComEd Energy Efficiency Program incentives are available for VSDs on HVAC chillers, fans, pumps and air compressors.


Reduce Consumption

When installing new motors or replacing worn out motors, consider using NEMA Premium-efficiency motors on all units one horsepower or greater. This is increasingly important for motors that operate for extended periods of time. Installing premium efficiency motors can save up to three percent in motor energy consumption.
