I'm away from my office so I don't know what the current draw will be for a 15 HP 480 volt 3 phase motor. It will easily draw more power than a three ton residential air conditioning system.

The Phill has a lower electrical load but takes quite a while to "Phill" up the CNG tanks on a car.

The automotive standard for energy storage remains the same. 300 mile minimum range. Complete refill inless than 10 minutes. CNG takes up roughly double the space of a standard gasoline tank to meet those standards.
