Rocky Mountain Power Recognizes Tram Electric As Outstanding Vendor

August 18, 2017

PRICE, Utah — This week Rocky Mountain Power recognized Tram Electric, Inc. with the wattsmart Business Vendor award for outstanding contributions to the 2016 Utah wattsmart Business program.

Tram Electric supports the Green Motors Initiative, which provides incentives to utility customers who participate in motor remanufacturing, or motor rewinds. When motors on commercial or industrial equipment begin to wear, their energy efficiency steadily declines. Businesses that invest in rewinds increase efficiency, often returning a motor to its original efficiency values, known as a green rewind.

The company is not only the highest participating service center for green motor rewinds in Utah, but it also ranks first in the western United States.  

“We are really proud to be associate with other businesses interested in saving this earth that we have,” said David Zaccaria, president of Tram Electric. “It’s a small part but it makes a difference, and we are proud to play a role in something that makes this area special.”

Zaccaria said while motor remanufacturing can be mean time and money for businesses, it saves around 10 times the amount of greenhouse gas emissions than manufacturing a new motor.  

In Utah, Tram Electric's 2016 contributions included green motor rewinds for 25 motors for 12 different customers, resulting in an estimated first-year savings 150,000 kilowatt-hours.

Across all of Rocky Mountain Power territories in 2016, Tram was involved in a total of 66 motor rewinds.

“We applaud Tram Electric for their great effort and contribution in helping our customers be energy efficient,” said Clay Monroe, Rocky Mountain Power customer solutions program manager. “They have been a valuable partner and we appreciate their dedication and focus on this important work.”
