Benefits of invention explained

I want to clarify the benefits of our Revolution and what we are proposing to the District of Summerland.

Dear Editor:

I am the founder and president of ElectroMotion Energy and the inventor of our core Revolution technology. I want to clarify the benefits of our Revolution and what we are proposing to the District of Summerland in response to a letter from Henry Sielmann in last week’s Opinions section.

Unfortunately, Mr. Sielmann doesn’t address any of the topics or issues relating to the article in the Summerland Review titled Electricity Policy Requested which supposedly prompted Mr. Sielmann’s letter in the first place.  I will therefore try to clarify the topics outlined in the original news article.

Statistically, some 63 per cent of residential energy consumption is used for space heating, hot water about 15 per cent and electricity is 20 per cent (Natural Resources Canada – http://oee.nrcan.gc.ca).

Electrical energy is not the type of energy we consume the greatest, but we do require electricity all the time as nothing happens without electricity — no communications, business or even heating.

ElectroMotion’s Revolution generates electricity when it heats your home — which coincides when we have peak use for our electricity – during the heating season.  Data provided by Summerland Utility and analyzed by John B. Hall (retired CEO of PLP Utility) clearly shows that reducing this peak demand by generating our own electricity during heating season will save the community millions of dollars. The Revolution will reduce energy consumption and costs for homeowners while also benefiting the utility by eliminating the need to remotely generate and distribute the electricity we generate in our homes.

Ironically, electricity is globally generated using thermal (heat) methods using coal, natural gas, diesel and nuclear fuel.  The US Dept. of Energy (DOE) states that ‘for all the electricity generated in the USA more that two-thirds of the fuel used is lost as heat’.

This means that 3 kW of energy is required to provide 1 kW of electricity at the demand site (e.g. your home).

We have thermal pictures showing our electrical substation ‘glowing’ at 32 Celsius when the temperature outside is -20 Celsius…these are some of the heat losses which the U.S. DOE statistic refers.

The Revolution does not increase carbon emissions.

I have lived in Summerland for 20 years and want to see my Revolution benefit my community first.

For review, I have posted the presentation we gave to the District of Summerand’s council to our website at www.ElectroMotionEnergy.com and will personally reply to any email inquires for additional information.

Jai Zachary, President
