Arista Power, Inc. Receives Power on Demand Order From Zweigle’s, Inc.
ROCHESTER, N.Y., Oct. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Arista Power, Inc. (“Arista Power” or the “Company”) (OTCBB: ASPW), a manufacturer, designer and integrator of renewable energy generation, management and distribution systems, announced today that it received an order from Zweigle’s, Inc. for a Power on Demand renewable energy storage and management system to be installed at Zweigle’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Rochester, New York.
Arista Power’s Power on Demand system reduces electricity demand charges, which are based on a customer’s peak power demand on the grid and which can account for 30% to 70% of a commercial electric bill.
“As part of our sustainability initiative, we are looking forward to the implementation of Arista Power’s renewable energy system which allows us to reduce our carbon footprint,” said Julie Camardo-Steron, President and fifth-generation owner of Zweigle’s. “The savings from generating a portion of our own power along with energy incentives intended to encourage manufacturers to pursue alternate energy sources will fully fund the system,” she added.
Arista Power’s patent-pending Power on Demand system utilizes energy generated by wind turbines, solar PV or the grid itself in conjunction with a custom-designed battery storage system and a proprietary real-time “smart monitoring” technology. The monitoring system is designed to smooth power demand on the grid by maintaining grid demand within optimal parameters and releasing stored power only during peak demand periods, thereby reducing peak demand charges, prolonging battery life and lowering commercial electricity costs.
