Video: What do the new motor efficiency requirements mean to the end user?
At the 2010 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago, Baldor Electric talks with Group Publisher Jim Langhenry about the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 and what the new motor efficiency requirements mean to the end user.
At the 2010 IMTS show at McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago, CFE Media Group Publisher/Co-Founder Jim Langhenry interviews Product Manager George Weihrauch with Baldor Electric to discuss the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007.

This law expands the mandated energy efficiency standards from the Energy Policy Act of 1992 (EPAct) for a wider range industrial motors which are manufactured for sale in the United States.
