The KVAR Energy Controller (KVAR EC™)
A ‘New Solution’ for Energy Efficiency and Smart Grid
The KVAR EC™ is a cost effective product that reduces electric consumption and spans through the residential, commercial and industrial markets, specifically all electrical service from 600 volts and below. The tangible results of using the KVAR ECs™ are real savings on energy bills, reduction in demand for electric utilities, decreased line losses and carbon emissions.
The KVAR Corp. holds a U.S. Patent for the method and apparatus to determine the specific amount of capacitance to bring power factor to unity, thus optimizing all inductive loads. To prove its reliability and savings, KVAR ECs™ have successfully been tested and received endorsements from NASA, Honeywell and SMT Engineering LLC., an independent third party. The KVAR EC™ is UL and CSA listed, CE certified and meets RoHS (Restriction on Hazardous Substances Directives). The RoHS compliance qualifies KVAR ECs™ as Green Products since all its electric and electronic components are compliant.
This means the passive units of fixed capacitors is made of linseed oil capacitors, as opposed to PCBs, the wiring and other components are also of premium grade. KVAR EC™ were designed for a 25 year life cycle.
Our KVAR Distributors are bound to install KVAR ECs™ only when an estimated 6% of savings will accrue to the customer. Typical savings for residential units will vary from 6% to 10%; commercial from 6% to 17%; and industrial from 6% to 25%. We also have a long list of deployments that exceed these benchmarks. Our satisfied customers span the globe and are found in most business sectors. Customer testimonials, including billing evidence, datasets and sector-by-sector references are available upon request. Area-wide deployments of KVAR EC™ will significantly reduce demand placed on the electric grid. Utilities will also reduce both transformer and line losses. All KVAR EC™ equipped customers will also benefit from reduce power bills. For customers subjected to demand charges and PF penalties, they will be reduced or eliminated. Working in conjunction with electric utilities, the KVAR Corp. helps prepare and coordinate energy efficiency programs suited to the individual requirements of the utility and their customer base.
In North America, the KVAR Corp. is already working with its KVAR Distributors and their customers to help them take advantage of incentive programs available through utilities, power planning council, administrations and commissions; and other municipal, county, state, federal and provincial entities. The KVAR EC™ truly represents a potent electric distribution system improvement, which needs to be considered first among energy efficiency and conservation measures that have the ability to better both the electric grid and utility customers. The key to obtaining the best possible economic advantage from electric power is to get rid of wasted power by ensuring a high PF throughout the Smart Grid.
