Calculate motor payback periods online

26 May, 2011

WEG has developed an online calculator that allows motor users to determine energy savings, payback times and reductions in CO2 emissions when evaluating new projects, or replacing existing motors with higher efficiency types in fan and pump applications.

The payback calculator is not limited to WEG products: it can compare efficiencies with any product on the market. It produces reports, and can compare a wide range of variables, based on usage and component specifications, to find the best motor for an application, including multi-motor installations.
