Power Efficiency Corporation engages in the design, development, marketing, and sale of proprietary solid state electrical components designed to reduce energy consumption in alternating current induction motors. Principal Products and Technology The company sells its product, which is based on analog technology and reduces energy consumption in alternating current induction motors in certain applications. This product has been known by various names, including the Power Commander and Power Genius. In 2008, limited models of the first-generation of the digital product were launched. In 2009, the company launched a line of products approximately 300 horsepower that had certification from Underwriters Laboratories and/or Canadian Standards Associate and its second-generation digital circuitry was launched. The company has developed patented and patent-pending technologies for controlling the energy usage of an electric motor. It has been granted two United States Patents, the first 1998 and the second in 2010. The company’s collective patented and patent pending technology includes E-SAVE Technology and it has a registered trademark on this name. The company has developed technologies and products for use on three-phase and single-phase motors. Three-Phase Motor Efficiency Controller (MEC) The company focuses its marketing efforts for the Three-Phase MEC in the elevator and escalator industry, and it is also marketing this product to industrial markets, such as recycling, mining, plastics, and manufacturing. Industries that operate equipment, such as conveyor systems, crushing equipment, stamping presses, granulators, grinders, shredders and other motor driven equipment with varying loads, are believed to be viable target markets for the Three-Phase MEC. The company is seeking to target markets with appropriate applications and market access, using direct sales, original equipment manufacturer (OEMs), distributors and independent representatives to address these markets. Single-Phase Product Like the company’s three-phase product, its single-phase product reduces energy consumption in electric motors by sensing and controlling the amount of energy the motor consumes. Marketing and Sales The company targets industrial markets, such as mining, aggregates and plastics. End users of the company’s products include retail chains, hotels, airports, transit systems, and mining, plastics and manufacturing companies. The company sells products into the elevator and escalator market primarily to and through global OEM resellers. The company has formal supply agreements for North America with ThyssenKrupp, KONE, and Schindler. Majority of these global OEMs have their own private label versions of the company’s products. These private label products are made by the company exclusively for a particular OEM. The company also sells to and completes projects with Otis Elevator Company.
