Date: Thursday, June 24th, 2010

Location: SRP Information Services Building (ISB), 1600 N Priest Dr, Tempe, AZ 85281

Speaker: Bill Howe, EPRI

Topic: "Energy Savings from PQ Mitigation Technologies - Techniques for Evaluating Vendor Claims"

Retrofit energy saving devices (RESD) are technologies added to existing electrical systems often for the purpose of saving energy. These devices commonly incorporate well recognized PQ mitigation technologies, but are differentiated from other systems by claims of significant energy savings, often in excess of 10% or more. This presentation will review the most common claims made for RESD technologies and present an approach for the consumer to evaluate them.
