Canada’s NEVVUS Group is offering a new “plug-and-play” device that can cut energy use by 10% or more, simply by plugging it into a wall outlet.
Dubbed the POWERGUARD, it works by reducing power spikes and energy surges. As a result the electrical system of your home or office is more efficient. Energy used in inductive motors, which are used in various appliances (refrigerators and air conditioners are just 2 examples), is often lost during the operation of these appliances. The POWERGUARD stores this otherwise lost energy in it’s capacitors. In other words it captures any excess energy, stores it and then feeds it back into your electrical system for “maximum energy efficiency.”
According to a Nevvus spokesperson there are already 300,000 people around the world who are using this device and it works. The POWERGUARD is going for $199.99 plus shipping and handling. According the spokesperson the device will pay for itself in a year if not sooner. With climbing electricity prices even a 10% savings is worth it.
