Living Green: KVAR energy controller

“I use a compressor all the time, its always running,” says Michael Bissell of Garden City.

Michael Bissell stays busy doing lots of woodworking projects around the house. But he says his utility bill is paying for it.

“It just draws a lot, and you know throws the bill up. But I like to do, when I get home and relax,” he says.

Bissell’s power tools all have motors, just like household appliances like a washer and dryer. All of these motors produce heat or wasted energy, which in turn equals a higher utility bill.

“If most of my energy was going through motors, then that’s what I needed to look at,” says Bissell.

To cope with his over two hundred dollar a month electric bill, Bissell purchased an electric saving device called a KVAR energy controller. The device helps eliminate wasted energy given of by motors that is normally fed back to utility company capacitors.

“What we do is we stop that power from going back out from the utility company and store it in your own home. So you’re recycling your own power instead of paying for twice as you’re doing now without a capacitor stored in your home,’ says David Blackburn of Think Green Energy Savers.

The KVAR box stores and also regulates electricity.

“By making the motors run more efficient, cooler, and making them last longer,” says David Blackburn of Think Green Energy Savers.

“My water heater alone is 18 years old. They normally don’t last that long so if I can make anything last longer or work better, it’s all the better for my bill,” says Michael Bissell.

After having the KVAR device for only one month, Bissell’s Utility Bill was lowered by about fifteen percent. After five months, Bissell’s bill went down twenty percent, something he says he can’t complain about.

“Who wouldn’t think saving money is perfect,” says Bissell.

The KVAR energy saving device costs about five hundred and fifty dollars. It can take anywhere from about eight to fourteen months to pay for it, depending on how much energy your home consumes. Commercial businesses can also benefit from it.

Residential Power Factor Scam Device KVAR EC Clone

 

Our power factor optimization products save energy for utility customers.  They also reduce demand on the electric grid, much to the benefit of electric utilities that have adopted pro-active energy efficiency programs and a socially responsible environmental approach.
