What is an electrically commutated motor?
These motors are typically installed on evaporator fans in grocery store coolers, freezers and cold storage areas. An electrically commutated motor (ECM) is an energy efficient option to alternating current (AC) shaded-pole and permanent-split capacitor motors.
To be eligible your business must have an active electricity account and reside in an existing commercial building.
The ECM must be installed on evaporator fans in refrigeration equipment systems and must be replacing AC shaded-pole or permanent-split capacitor motors. Your ECM must be installed by a participating installer and installed on or after April 5, 2017.

How to receive your free upgrade
Contact a participating installer when your existing AC motor needs to be replaced.
You pay for a regular AC motor replacement. takeCHARGE provides a free automatic upgrade to an energy efficient ECM for each motor you need replaced.
For optimal performance keep your new ECM motors from getting wet by ensuring drain pans are clean and free of debris so that any water can drain freely away from the ECMs.
takeCHARGE reserves the right to change or terminate this rebate program at any time. If there is a difference between our printed materials and our website, please refer to the website for the most up-to-date program information.
