Ohio Businesses Encouraged to Use Cogged V-Belts
Dayton Power and Light (DP&L) is participating in a program with Argonne National Laboratories, Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance and AEP Ohio to encourage distributors of commercial products to sell energy efficient cogged (or notched) V-belts.
The pilot program, which runs through October, is attempting to transform the market and move businesses toward the use of cogged V-belts, which run cooler, last longer and use two to three percent less energy than the standard smooth V-belt, according to the US Department of Energy.
V-belts are used in electric motors in both industrial and commercial markets. Cogged V-belts have perpendicular slots on the belt’s length that reduce a belt’s bending resistance and improve power transmission of motor systems.
Two participating distributors – Allied Supply and Johnstone Supply – can earn incentives for increasing sales of cogged belts during the program by encouraging customers to switch to the cogged V-belt.
The program is part of DP&L’s ongoing Energy Efficiency efforts to help businesses save money through rebates for reducing energy costs by installing higher energy efficiency equipment, lighting and for designing and constructing buildings that are more energy efficient than standard codes.
