How It Saves

GESPER How It Saves
Typical Gesper Units
The first step to responsible energy sustainability is to make the energy operating within the building operate with better efficiency. That is exactly what the G.E.S.P.E.R. System accomplishes.

The G.E.S.P.E.R. System is custom designed for each building. The design is based on a site survey; which indicates the type of motors, appliances, breaker box locations, etc... that make up the electric system.

The G.E.S.P.E.R. System is two products in one.
  • First, it is a whole building power conditioner that conditions the dirty power that is in a building's electric current; filtering harmful harmonics, balancing the voltage, optimizing Power Factor, reducing and eliminating spikes, etc... (all issues associated with dirty power). The savings received as a power conditioner will be apparent to the owner/company from the time of the install of the system as it is proven to reduce the kWh utilized by a facility as is shown on the electric bill.
  • Second, it is a is a whole building surge protector that provides mid term to long term savings by increasing equipment and electronic component life.

Short Term to Long Term Savings: KWH Usage Reduction

The net result with the installation of the G.E.S.P.E.R. System is a reduction in the amount of energy used by an average of 19%. This is achieved by making the energy in the system better quality energy. Surges and spikes are shunted to ground. Harmonics that are harmful to appliances and motors are reduced or eliminated. Voltages are balanced.

The net reduction of the minimum 10% of kWh utilized or greater is a net reduction to the overall electric bill. The usage reduction saves not only on the retail cost of the electricity (rate X kWh), but also the distribution cost and other variable wholesale cost built into the electric bill that are based on the kWh utilized.

Mid Term to Long Term Savings: Reduced Equipment Replacement and Maintenance

G.E.S.P.E.R. system is a ETL tested and approved (ETL Tested UL 1449 3rd Edition SPD, ETL Tested VPR Rated 1200 Volts 100KA RMS SCCR Rating). Competing surge protection devices (SPD) with the same ETL/UL approval can cost as much as 9 times the amount of the G.E.S.P.E.R. System to achieve the same results.

As both a Surge Protection Device (SPD) and a power conditioner, the G.E.S.P.E.R. System provides better energy to motors and appliances that result in:
  • Cooler running motors and appliances,*
  • Lower maintenance expense on motors,*
  • Lower maintenance expense on appliances,*
  • Extended motor life due to lower running temperatures, reduced harmonics, and reduced surges and spikes.*
  • The reduction of surges and spikes in the electric system will also increase the life of light bulbs.*
  • For industrial plants that may experience Power Factor penalties, the G.E.S.P.E.R. System will be engineered within the electric system to lower or remove the PF (power factor) penalty from the bill.

*Note that none of the benefits listed above are included in the kWh usage savings, ROI, or break even calculations, but are additional savings to the reduced billable usage that averages 19% in most facilities.

The Reliability Information Analysis Center (RIAC) that was established by the Department of Defense created the Mean Time Before Failure (MTBF) statistics that dramatize the long term benefits of SPD systems. (see Below).
