It is estimated that more than 20% of all electrical power generated in the United States is consumed by electric motor systems. In the manufacturing sector, electric motors account for 70% of electricity consumption. A small amount of efficiency improvement therefore has a huge impact on power cost savings and emmsion reduction of CO2 generation. This paper evaluates the economic impact of premium and super-premium copper rotor motors that offer efficiency improvements over conventional premium motor. The analysis extends from manufacturing cost differences to the resulting power usage benefits and finally to the resulting reduction of CO2 emission for power plant generation.
