. Special Note on Eaton's Dry-Type Transformers —
Eaton's Distribution Dry-Type Transformers
are assembled in Mexico of mostly American made materials and would comply with the ARRA Rules for Federal Projects
with a total value > $8.8M per NAFTA. On projects less than $8.8M, Eaton can furnish these transformers from a U.S. source in compliance with the ARRA. Some State and Local projects may not recognize NAFTA compliance. If this is the case, please advise your Eaton Representative of the need for Eaton to supply American made transformers for those projects.
At the time of an order, Eaton would be happy to confirm that the specific products ordered conform to the ARRA requirements.
Thanking you in advance for choosing Eaton products for your projects, Dave Bucklew
