Hydraulic Institute Pump Energy Rating Label
The Hydraulic Institute (HI)—in collaboration with NEEA, pump manufacturers, U.S. Department of Energy, and utilities—developed the HI Energy Rating (ER) Label. The label is designed to clearly indicate the power savings available from pump upgrades and changes. The savings is calculated over the baseline established by the U.S. Department of Energy according to HI Performance Test Standards. By using the label, manufacturers and distributors can quickly compare the relative power consumption of various models, and utilities can use the Energy Rating score for incentive programs and rebates. Watch the HI Energy Rating video to see how the label is being used for utility incentive programs and rebates.
