Nextek Power Systems power server solutions brings new connectivity to facilities, allowing integration of Distributed Generation at formerly unattainable efficiencies. Out of Detroit, MI, their ultra-high efficiency DC power network uses Direct Coupling® technology, improving efficiency by 10%-42% to use energy from the lowest cost sources first.  In their controls offering, accomplishing a level of control at about a quarter of the cost of what could comparably be installed.

Nextek was selected to present at TechConnect World’s Utility Technology Challenge (UTC) earlier this year, their first time participating in the UTC.  According to Jeff Daudert, Key Account Manager at NSP,  “It was a great networking event, as well as an opportunity to expose our technology to utility folks, other companies and technologies.”

Mr. Daudert told us they are looking for projects, (and) clients interested in adding some renewable energy sources or looking to upgrade lighting. According to Mr. Daudert, that is the best time to upgrade the distribution system.
