Commercial Electrical Energy Efficiency - Colorado Kvar

Benefits:

  • Lower peak demand charges
  • Reduces electricity required by inductive loads
  • Reduces line losses
  • Increased motor life through lower operating temperatures
  • Enhances capacity of existing electrical system
  • Surge protection eliminates danger of harmful power surges and sags.
  • Reduces harmful effects caused by electrical noise in the electrical system
  • Increases commercial electrical energy efficiency
  • Carbon footprint reduction by decreasing greenhouse gases; every kwh of electricity produced by a coal or oil fired power plant generates 2.75 pounds of green house gasses.
  • KVAR currently has over 300,000 KEC units installed with a corresponding reduction in greenhouse gasses of over 150 million tons EACH MONTH!
  • 5 year comprehensive warranty on your unit

The KVAR Energy Controller (KEC) is designed to provide significant commercial electrical energy efficiency. Using our patented equipment and methods we individually test and evaluate each motor load for maximum savings. Custom KVAR Units are built per the specifications attained from our test results. Clients save on electric bills, increase the life of their electrical motors through heat reduction and provide surge protection for their equipment. Using methods employed at large industrial complexes, now reduced to a compact unit, to reclaim and recycle electrical energy. The application has benefits to both the user and the supplier of electrical power.

Customers using the KEC have realized savings of up to 20% savings on their equipment operating costs. A wonderful testament to commercial electrical energy efficiency, the KEC fine-tunes the electrical system which reduces heat generation, reduces watts, reduces line losses and results in electrical energy savings. The KEC protects against power surges and voltage sags and increases the capacity of the electrical panel. All this means extra dollars in your pocket. All commercial KVAR products are backed with a comprehensive full five year factory warranty.

How The Kvar Energy Controller Works

In relation to commercial electrical energy efficiency, the KEC increases power factor by reducing the amount of reactive power (kVAR) that the load draws from the utility company. What is reactive power you ask? Reactive power is the power that comes from the power company, through your utility meter and goes to the windings of your motors to create the electromagnetic field so that the motor will turn. The wasteful part is that this energy is never consumed; it creates the magnetic field and is then dissipated in the form of heat. Because we have 60 cycle electricity this process must be repeated 60 times every second to keep the motor running. KEC Units store the reactive power (KVAR) needed for the creation of the electromagnetic field within the inductive load. As the motor operates, this reactive power is "pulled" and "pushed" to and from the KEC by the motor. As a result the amount of reactive power required from the utility company has been greatly reduced or eliminated and the initial power spike is reduced.
