Maximum Yield Explains Variable Frequency Drive (VFD)
VFD’s help to lower operating cost by reducing motor speed when it is not needed. A variable frequency drive can cut power consumption in half and work to reduce energy usage as well. They can also work with the water system, and to shut off the water in places where it is not needed. A variable frequency drive is helps lower stress on the pump. Minimal maintenance is needed, and many growers say that the return on investment with a variable frequency drive pays itself on in 12 months with how much energy is used.
