Grundfos’ Alpha and Magna pumps have been designated to participate inthe United States'  Efficiency Vermont’s High-Performance Circulator Pump Program. The scheme promotes the installation of high efficiency pumps in Vermont homes and businesses.

Efficiency Vermont, an organisation that provides energy efficiency services to homes and businesses throughout the US state, designed the pilot program to provide a new opportunity for Vermonters to save energy and money. It provides technical assistance and financial incentives for qualifying circulator pumps at the wholesale level, enabling Vermont distributors to partner with contractors to deliver high-value, high-performance energy saving equipment to the marketplace.

“Through Efficiency Vermont’s High-Performance Circulator Pump Program, contractors are able to offer homeowners premium products like Grundfos’ Magna and Alpha at a very attractive price position ,” said Terry Teach, business development director for Grundfos North America. “Our products are easy-to-install, highly reliable and – most importantly – they offer significant energy savings of up to 85%.”

The Hydraulic Institute estimates that 10% of global electricity is consumed by pumps, and optimized pump technology is one of the key elements to reducing this number. Efficiency Vermont’s High-Performance Circulator Pump Program allows contractors to contribute to the solution by installing energy-efficient circulators like Grundfos’ Magna and Alpha .
