Acme Electric Company announces its latest weapon in the war on financial, energy and environmental waste. Its new POWERWISE C3 Transformer provides a 30 percent increase in efficiency performance over standard TPI transformers, which translates into big savings for its users and the planet.
Save energy. POWERWISE C3 transformers deliver both performance reliability and significantly lower energy consumption thanks to optimized design and materials. Built in an ISO 9001 facility to ANSI/IEEE and UL standards, the C3 features high‐grade electrical steel and copper wound construction with a 3‐phase common‐core. Over a thirty year installation life, millions of kilowatt hours can be saved using POWERWISE C3s. No load losses, which are critical in sites where loading on transformers is low ‐ are 40 to 50 % less than with typical TPI transformers.
Over 40 years, it is estimated the transformers will reduce the building’s CO2 emissions by 3,760 tons and SO2 and NOx emissions by 32 and 14 tons, respectively. Coal usage will be reduced by approximately 12,240 tons.
“ Imagine the reductions in expenditures, emissions, and fossil-fuel use that could be realized if all buildings installed high efficiency CSL-3 transformers.” — Mike Boyd, Product Manager Acme
Save the atmosphere. Because they draw less power, The C3s create fewer greenhouse gases and generate less smog in the atmosphere. That translates into potentially thousands of tons of CO2 spared from one installation.
Save money. Best of all, in most cases the POWERWISE C3 delivers payback within 3 to 4 years. The savings generated from lower kilowatt hour usage, fewer no‐load losses, and consistently high performance makes this an easy choice for any company interested in saving money, reducing green house gases and becoming more green. The POWERWISE C3 transformer comes with a 25 year warranty, UL certification, and provides LEED credits for optimizing energy performance.
