High-efficiency transformers allow to save enormous amount of energy

Small increases in efficiency can result in substantial savings because power transformers typically operate continuously. According to power management company Eaton, over the next 30 years, meeting  U.S. Department of Energy's  new efficiency standards for distribution transformers will eliminate the need for 3.63 quadrillion British thermal units (Btu) of energy, which is roughly equivalent to the energy consumed by 40 million American households in one year.
Approximately 264.7 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions will also be avoided, comparable to removing more than 51 million passenger vehicles from the road for one year. Read more at http://www.pressreleasepoint.com/
