At first glance the "Voltage Control Guard 1 - VSG1 - GIG2 " presents itself like another "long wished" but impossible hope of electromagnetism. But on further investigation the system is not about 'magic magnets' but potentially an effective way to reduce electrical inefficiency by filtering harmonics through variable inductance.
To quote from a fellow authority on energy scams "If the claims were true, using a savings of only 5% on the US generation capacity of 4157 million MWh (in 2007) - the annual savings would be in the billions of dollars in the USA alone.
The obvious approach would be to patent, publish and then license the technology - it would become standard equipment everywhere, the inventor would be richer than Bill Gates and a Nobel prize would follow.
I have recently been contacted by Tim Rosemore, CEO of GiG2 Group, Inc. who strongly disagrees with the above statement. He informs me that they have written a technical rebuttal and FAQ in response to the above opinion.
I will confess to being skeptical, but in fairness to GIG2 Group who asked us to reconsider our opinion, and to the fact that the case studies presented on their web site present plausible electricity savings, we suggest that each consumer examine their needs and circumstances with care.
I am pleased to see that the system is being positioned to businesses rather than home owners, where the amount of elctricity being used, and correcting the harmonics could pay for the units cost.
We hope that the idea you can get energy for FREE though, or use magets to make unlimited energy, or build your own solar panels, or outlandish claims & hard selling videos suggesting conspiracy will be an early warning of products that do nothing but part you from your hard earned cash.
Energy Saving Scams by Ronald Bronson and others have viciously hijacked the social media and Internet. The need for affiliate advertising dollars has duped many publishers into posting false positive commentary on these "near fraud" practices, flooding the internet.
Added to this, the perpetrators have engaged in a systematic program to create new new web content, targeted at search terms looking for reviews, and containing bogus rebuttals and further false energy saving claims. We encourage readers to become selective in the energy sites they frequent, to know that search results can be misleading, and to only consider reviews (all content is moderated) from trusted publishers like Open4Energy.
