Grundfos permanent magnet motor joins ECA list


The Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) scheme is a government scheme that was introduced in 2001 to encourage businesses to purchase energy efficient products and thereby help to reduce CO2 emissions.

Companies, who invest in products that are on the approved Energy Technology List (ETL) can get the benefit of being able to claim 100% first year capital allowances on their outlay. The claim also allows for the inclusion, not just the cost of purchasing the pumps/pumping systems, but also any costs associated with the installation and transportation to site. For the average company this means an additional saving of £2,250 on an allowance of £10,000, which is addition to the standard first year depreciation saving.

Grundfos Pumps and their pump products have been part of this scheme for many years and have now received confirmation that Grundfos permanent magnet MGE motors have been accepted onto the ETL listing – which considerably expands the range of Grundfos products that are part of the scheme.

These figures do not include the on-going savings that will be enjoyed by companies who install approved energy saving equipment such as is available from Grundfos Pumps. Yet another reason to select Grundfos as your pump solutions partner.
