  • Hershel Butler’s new business, Pirate Technologies LLC, is providing the energy-saving ElectroFlow system to large businesses in Missouri and Illinois.
    The system is for businesses using a “three-phase electrical system, with electric bills greater than $3,000 a month,” Butler said.
    The system is offered worldwide and is used in 105 countries. Companies using it include Cargill, Los Angeles Unified Schools, Ford Motor Co. and Bristol Meyer.
    “Worldwide, we save about 16.7 percent on their electric bill,” Butler reported.
    Although ElectroFlow is currently offered only to large businesses, Butler expects it to be available for retail stores and residences in summer of 2015.
    “I am the exclusive distributor of this product here in Eastern Missouri and Illinois,” Butler said.
    Design
    The ElectroFlow system was designed 33 years ago by Dr. Mike Mehrdad, a Mizzou professor of electrical engineering, Butler said. “He got it patented and started selling it, and 10 years ago it went worldwide.” It is built in Columbia, Mo. The company name is Electenergy Technologies Inc.
    Buster, who opened his business in May, said, “I’m excited about helping businesses save money and making their profits sustainable by helping with their electric grid, with reconditioning and recycling electricity.”
    A free energy audit is the first step in becoming affiliated with his business. “I go in and do an energy audit, free of charge,” Butler said. “That energy audit is sent to the engineering team in Columbia, Mo. They build a report and send it back to me, and I go back and tell what is transpiring in their electrical system.
    “If I can save them some money, I introduce them to ElectroFlow, and if they choose to purchase it, it takes about two months to get the system built and installed. They can buy it or lease it.
    “The return of their investment is about a year and a half, on average,” Butler said. “The life expectancy of the device is 15 years.”
    His company’s goal is “to provide an education in the proper ways to utilize their current electrical supply to maximize equipment longevity, reduce down time and increase profits, with a goal of making those profits sustainable.”
    Butler added that, “We are a dedicated team to help conserve energy, thus reduce greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. By doing so, we find that the ElectroFlow system has been a great tool to help achieve these goals.”
     
    His office is at 1613 Fulton Ave., in Hannibal, Mo., where he may be contacted by phone at (573) 629-5354.
