XZERES Wind Corp., a designer, developer and producer of distributed-generation wind power systems up to 100 kW, has acquired substantially all of the assets of Rochester Power Saver Inc. The acquisition is in the form of an asset purchase.
Rochester makes a family of power-efficiency products designed to improve the power factor and reduce the amount of reactive power being drawn at a location.
By making this improvement, these power-management devices can enhance the efficiency of inductive motors by reducing the amperage needed, according to the company. The Rochester product line consists of several models, each having a different size and capacity rating.
XZERES intends to emphasize its sales and marketing efforts for this product at commercial, small- and medium-sized businesses as well as public institutions, such as schools and libraries.
