cost versus energy efficiency ratings. Over the lifetime of the motor, it will incur substantial costs for electric use: (100 hp x .746 kW/hp x 40,000 hrs x $.07/kWh)/.93 eff. = $ 224,602. However, if the motor is just 2% more efficient, it will cost significantly less: (100 hp x .746 kW/hp x 40,000 hrs x $.07/kwh)/.95 eff. = $ 219,873.
