|How does it work?
The Power unit reduces the amount of power drawn from the utility by
temporarily storing otherwise wasted electricity from the induction motors in your home. Then
when the motor needs more power it is fed back from our units directly to the motor, which reduces the
wasted electric, which lower electric bills.
It is not a storage battery but a short term buffer between the power company and your home electrical
(Some examples of the offending motors are Air Conditioning units,
refrigerators, freezers, washers, dryers, dishwashers, pool pumps, vacuum cleaners, furnace blower motors, heat
pumps, fans etc.)
Electric motors as a rule don't use all of the electricity that they draw from the power source. they
waste a good deal of power in the form of over producing the magnetic field that turns the motor.
Our power boxes helps to reduce this process, which in turn reduces the amount of electric used
to run each motor in your home.
This whole process is called power factor optimization.
What is power factor?
Power factor is the percentage of electricity that’s delivered to your house and used effectively, compared
to what is wasted. For example, a 1.0 power factor means that all the electricity that’s being delivered to your
home is being used effectively for its purpose. However, most homes in America today have a .77 power factor or
less. This means that 77% of the electricity that is coming thru your meter at your home or business is being used
effectively, the other 23% is being wasted by your inductive load (motors). With a low power factor, the utility
has to deliver more electricity to do the same work. However, the Power unit increases that power factor in most
cases to .97 or .98, thus increasing the effective use of your electricity and lower electric bills.
