First of all, I would like to set this record straight. Dearl was not even a manager of IT Infrastructure when this was technology researched, bought, and brought into the company. He was only involved in the last 5% of the project. The credit for discovery belongs to Jacob Southard. He found this technology, researched it, procured it for JV and left just a little bit before it was implemented. Also, if you read this article, you will realize that Dearl has no idea of what battery life is like in a UPS. He was a Telecom Director, who used politics to get to a new title. JV didn't keep replacing batteries. That was done, once every 4-5 years. Artciles like this need to be banned. Flywheel technology is great. But the source information on this is false. And yes, I have proof.
