The Green Choice™ brand of motors saves energy by reducing the amount of electricity needed, indirectly reducing the amount of carbon dioxide emitted into the air. The JuggerNaut™, 3-in-1™, and iMotor™ are motors that have been released under this brand. The JuggerNaut is built to withstand the extreme temperature conditions found in commercial rooftop applications and the rigorous demands inverters place on condenser fan motors. The 3-in-1 3.3-inch diameter, permanent split capacitor motor is a direct drop-in replacement for walk-in cooler evaporator fan motors. According to the manufacturer, this multihorsepower motor can save the retailer up to 50 percent in energy usage. The iMotor is a unit-bearing, electronically commutated motor (ECM), designed as a direct drop-in replacement for supermarket case evaporator fans. It uses less wattage to achieve the same airflow as a shaded pole motor, saving the retailer up to 65 percent in energy usage, says the company.
