NEMA Commends Introduction of Energy-Efficiency Tax Legislation
Press release date: Jul 02, 2012
According to NEMA Vice President of Government Relations Kyle Pitsor, the advanced motor tax credit provides a commonsense incentive to use energy more efficiently.
"Energy savings gained from installing advanced technology motor systems will be felt for years to come. We commend Sens. Bingaman, Snowe, and Feinstein for their leadership on this legislation and look forward to working with them to get this bill to the President's desk," he said.
The tax credit of $120 per horsepower for advanced motor systems would incentivize purchasers to deploy these technologies in the marketplace at a faster rate. Greater deployment would spur economic growth and job creation in the manufacturing, commercial, and industrial sectors while at the same time saving energy and energy costs.
