As most of you are aware the US Department of Energy (DOE) has mandated new higher efficiency levels for Low and Medium Voltage distribution transformers effective January 1st 2016.

According to DOE, the new energy efficiency levels will reduce energy losses by an average of 18% in low voltage dry-type distribution transformers and by 13% in medium voltage dry-type transformers.

The resulting environmental benefits and savings for customers are both significant. Over the next 30 years, DOE projects savings of up to $12.9 billion in total costs for consumers, saving families and businesses money while reducing energy consumption. The new energy efficiency standard’s positive environmental impact includes 3.63 quadrillion BTU’s of energy saved during the above mentioned period, that translates in avoiding 265 million metric tons of CO2 emissions equivalent to the annual emissions of about 52 million automobiles.

HPS proudly supports these changes and the environmental benefits that will result from them. We have been working hard for the past year to make sure we are ready to support our valued customers and business partners during this important transition period.

As a result of an exceptional team effort involving all HPS departments, manufacturing plants and warehouses, today we are ready to provide our customers with a completely redesigned DOE 2016 compliant product line which utilizes leading edge technologies and very high quality materials providing a technically advanced cost efficient solution for the most demanding customer applications.

Please visit our DOE website to browse our new catalog offer or call our dedicated sales professionals for help in selecting the magnetic solution that would best satisfy your technical requirements and ROI expectations while complying with the new DOE regulations.

In addition to the new DOE 2016 transformer stock, we are still able to support our customer’s requests for the previous TP1 energy efficiency level transformers. Although rapidly depleting, we still have a large variety of TP1 transformers in local US stock at 2015 price levels. Please check with your HPS sales professional for availability before ordering.

We’d like to thank you for your patience during this transition period, your continued support and trust in the superior quality and reliability of the HPS brand of transformers.
