Power-Save 1200

Hello -

I just saw a cheesy commercial on this (As Seen on TeeVee!!!!!!!!) :

How Does the Power-Save Unit Work?
The Power-Save reduces the amount of power drawn from the utility by storing (in its capacitors) otherwise lost electricity (watts) caused by the inductive motors in your home. (Some examples of inductive motors are Air Conditioning units, refrigerators, freezers, washers, dryers, dishwashers, pool pumps, vacuum cleaners, furnace blower motors, fans etc.) The technology applied by the Power-Save 1200? Unit supplies that stored electricity back to your inductive loads, thus causing you to decrease your demand from the utility. If you decrease your demand from the utility, your meter slows down, and you use less electricity. The thought is, you?ve already paid for that electricity, why pay for it and waste it when you can pay for it, store it, and reuse it again. This whole process is called power factor optimization.
Residential customers throughout North America could see a realized savings of 8% - 10% typically and as much as 25% on their electrical usage (and thus power bills).

If you say "yes" to only two or more of the following then you could be saving a significant amount of money on your electric bill right now!

Is your home over 2500 Square feet?
Is your central air conditioner / heat pump unit 3 years or older?
Is your forced air furnace 3 years or older?
Do you have a pool?
Do you have a well?
Do you use an air conditioner?
Is your refrigerator / freezer not EnergyStar rated?
Do you have more than one refrigerator / freezer?
Is your washer / dryer not EnergyStar rated?
Do you have a hot tub or a jacuzzi?
Is your dishwasher not EnergyStar rated?
Do you have a number of appliances in your home?
What do you think?

Is this another super-cap thing?

If you have inductive motors, capactors can definitely improve your power factor and help lower your bills. Does this device have enough capacitance to really help? I do not know.
