What Happens When Electric Motors Go Green?
Each year billions of dollars and electricity are wasted from electric motors electricity that can only run at 2 speeds, ON or OFF.
Their inability to adjust power to varying loads, makes them one of the biggest “wasters” of electricity.
Improving motor efficiency is a huge and the easiest to implement untapped “green resource” and represents a multi-billion dollar opportunity.
Power Efficiency has developed a patented and patent-pending technology platform, called E-Save Technology™, which has been demonstrated in independent testing to improve the efficiency of electric motors by up to 35% in appropriate applications.
Electric motors consume over 25% of the electricity in the U.S., and many operate inefficiently.
Power Efficiency is also developing a new product based on E-Save Technology™ for the tens of millions of small motors found in applications such as residential air conditioning, pool pumps and clothes dryers.
The company is working with manufacturers to incorporate this technology directly into new motors and appliances.
