Onics Energy Solutions, a Boston-based green technology startup founded in 2017, has launched six commercial trial accounts using its patented (US7948342132) energy filter. The Onics energy filter reduces Total Harmonics Distortion (THD). By reducing THD, a commercial or government building stands to save between 5-20% or more on its energy consumption.
“The preliminary numbers that are coming back from our trial accounts are very exciting. Depending on the building type and equipment in use (from manufacturing equipment to LED lighting to a room full of servers) our test accounts have been racking up huge energy savings – actually even higher than our original target estimates.
We have a few weeks remaining on our initial trials, but we cannot wait to see the final results. Once complete, we’ll be sharing the names of each of these leading businesses and hospitals along with their verified energy and carbon footprint savings,” said Chris LoPilato, CEO of Onics Energy Solutions.
The Onics energy filter, a passive device, is easily installed on the cold side of an electrical panel without any interruption of service. Each patented filter cuts THD “noise” that is caused by non-linear load equipment such as solar panels, computers, LED lighting and HVAC equipment. The 5-20% or more reduction in energy usage will help organizations reduce their harmful greenhouse gas emissions and carbon footprint.
“Our tiny passive device is now proven. In layman’s terms, each filter reduces energy noise that most can relate to as overheating. A great example would be when your phone becomes hot while charging – this is due to harmonics! We now have a device to reduce energy waste. This could have a huge impact nationally and globally in cutting our energy consumption and carbon footprint – a true win-win for our company and the planet,” continued LoPilato.
