Shoemaker Industrial Solutions is now a Certified Motor Service Center for American Electric Power Ohio (AEP Ohio). With this certification, Shoemaker is certified for its energy efficient electric motor rewinding processes and is able to offer AEP Ohio’s EMotor Rewind Program to our industrial customers in the Central Ohio area. The EMotor Rewind Program offers industrial companies, that are AEP Ohio customers, a $2 per horsepower rebate on electric motors in the 100 to 5,000 horsepower range for motors that we rewind. Shoemaker Industrial Solutions received the Certified Motor Service Center status as a result of an independent audit of its practices that was performed by Advanced Energy of Raleigh, North Carolina. Advanced Energy’s Proven Efficiency Verification (PEV) Program tests the electrical efficiency of an electric motor before and after the rewinding process. In the efficiency verification testing of our rewound motor, the motor did not experience any loss of efficiency over that of a new motor. As a result of this "no loss of efficiency" testing, Shoemaker Industrial Solutions was given both Advanced Energy's PEV certification as well as AEP Ohio's Certified Motor Service Center status.
