The EnerSaver FL1741 drive is a new low harmonic, line interactive AC drive system, specifically targeted at pumpjack, beam pumps and other related artificial lift applications such as ESP, PCP and compressors. It is rated from 3HP to 1500HP in voltages from 230V to 690V and is ideal for the rugged, demanding conditions typically found in the oil industry.

Major advantages of this new product are:
• Reduce power usage by upwards of 25%;
• Increase drive efficiency by approximately 30%;
• Near unity power factor;
• No more braking resistors;
• Near zero harmonics – eliminates damaging harmonics being sent to the power lines;
• Reduction in peak demand – reduce your load and voltage drawn from the utility;
• Torque and amperage limiting control reduces rod string vibration by up to 20% providing reduced maintenance costs;
• Suitable for use in areas which exhibit wide line voltage fluctuations;
• Instantaneous drive performance between motoring and generative operation; and
• Carbon credit eligible.


Alberta based CCW Energy System ( is a leading firm in the area of energy efficiency: designing and producing energy saving products with universal applications for the oil, civil and manufacturing industries. The company offers specialized drive systems for pumpjacks, beam-pumps, ESP, PCP and other large motor applications.

CCW has developed the world’s only UL 1741 certified generative motor drive system, specifically for oil field pumpjack applications. The EnerSaver FL1741 drive generates energy during the downstroke of the pumpjack and replaces commonly used braking resistors that simply dissipate and waste energy. The energy generated is used to power the upstroke of the pumpjack and/or sold to the grid.

In summary, the new system minimizes pumpjack power consumption, maximizes electricity credits and does so at near unity power factor and near zero harmonic distortion. In addition, the energy generated is considered green energy and can be eligible for off-set credits. CCW is working in conjunction with Blue Source Canada in this respect.
