Green Motors Initiative

The Green Motors Initiative employs industry best practices when rewinding motors (Green Rewind).

The certified rewind process ensures the motor maintains its original efficiency when the rewind is complete. Motors between 15 and 5,000 horsepower are eligible.*

Idaho Power pays participating service centers $2 per horsepower with $1 going to the rewind shop to help offset any added cost for each motor receiving a verified Green Rewind.

The other $1 goes to the customer in the form of a credit on the customer’s rewind invoice. The repair shop processes all of the required paperwork for the customer. Each motor receiving Green Rewind is verified by a non-profit trade organization, Green Motors Practice Group.

Motors must be rewound in a certified participating service center that has the equipment and training to perform Green Rewind. Find the Green Motors Initiative Member Service Centers offering Green Rewind in Idaho.

*Some motors may not be able to qualify as a green rewind due to extenuating circumstances, such as a damaged stator or rotor.
