How Does the Powersave Unit Work?"Power factor optimization" significantly increases the efficiency of your motor load and stores wasted energy resulting in decreased demand and usage of electricity from your utility company. This equates to significant cost savings for you the home owner.
What is Power Factor?Power factor is the measurement of how efficient your electrical system is. The Department of Energy gives a great example. Imagine a horse pulling a locomotive on its track. But the horse is 20-30 degrees to the right or left of the track. The horse has to exert 20% or more energy to pull the train than if it were directly in front of the locomotive. The Powersave aligns the horse directly in front of the locomotive making it easier to pull the locomotive. This is power factor. An alignment, or if you will an electrical phase alignment.
.Does the Powersave 1200™ work in any home?Yes it does, as long as you have a circuit breaker panel with breaker switches and not the old screw in type fuses. The unit will work on any single-phase electric application for homes. our home? Go to your panel, if there are two open slots, your good to go.

Why haven’t I heard of this product until now?That’s easy, two words “cost effectiveness”. Up until recently, electric rates throughout America were cheap, costing us 2, 3 or 4 cents per kilowatt-hour. Now, electric rates have reached 14, and 19 and in some cases, New York City is 22 cents per Kwh, Hawaii is 33.5 cents per Kwh. At the cheaper rates the Powersave didn’t make sense, but at the current rates, it makes all the sense in the world.
