Motor Efficiency Controller works on rock crushers

October 9, 2007 – Las Vegas, NV – Power Efficiency Corporation (OTCBB: PEFF.OB), a green energy company focused on efficiency technologies for electric motors, today announced it has had several successful tests of its Motor Efficiency Controller on rock crushers and has completed its first sale for this application. The Company has recently had several successful tests on rock crushers used in mining and aggregate, with energy savings consistently over 20%. These motors tend to be very large, so the number of kilowatt hours and dollars saved can be very significant.

One rock crusher at an aggregate facility just outside of Las Vegas was tested numerous times with a Motor Efficiency Controller. It is powered by a 300 horsepower motor and consistently showed savings over 20%, meaning an effective annual return on investment for the customer of over 50%. Not only does the Motor Efficiency Controller pay for itself in less than two years, it also provides the customer with a soft start that they did not previously have. Meter readings on other rock crushers have shown similar savings amounts are possible.

Steven Strasser, Power Efficiency’s Chairman and CEO, stated, "These applications with larger horsepower motors are very attractive for us. Selling larger Motor Efficiency Controllers with E-Save Technology means we have higher sales price points and generally better gross margins. Furthermore, because these large motors use so much more energy than small horsepower motors, even smaller percentage savings means substantial energy and dollar savings for our customers.”

”Furthermore, extending our already successful utility incentive financing programs from escalators to industrial applications, if possible, will result in excellent returns on investment for customers in these industries.”

The Company has recently hired a sales manager and sales engineer, bringing the total number of employees to fourteen, to focus solely on industrial applications and is actively targeting the mining, aggregate and cement industries. These industries use very significant amounts of electricity and have considerable crushing, mixing, and conveying systems, which the Company believes are good applications for Motor Efficiency Controllers with E-Save Technology.

About Power Efficiency Corporation
Power Efficiency Corporation is a green energy company focused on efficiency technologies for electric motors. Power Efficiency is incorporated in Delaware and is headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Company has developed a patented and patent-pending technology platform, called E-Save Technology, which has been demonstrated in independent testing to improve the efficiency of electric motors by 15-35% in appropriate applications. Electric motors consume over 25% of the electricity in the U.S. and many operate inefficiently. E-Save Technology can be licensed to motor, controls and equipment manufacturers. Power Efficiency’s first product based on E-Save Technology is a Motor Efficiency Controller for applications such as escalators, crushers, granulators, mixers, saws, and MG elevators. Power Efficiency is also developing a new product based on E-Save Technology for the tens of millions of small motors found in applications such as residential air conditioning, pool pumps, and clothes dryers. The company is working with manufacturers to incorporate this technology directly into new motors and appliances.
