Jeff Clayton – An Innovator from an Early Age
Just who is Jeff Clayton? On the surface, he’s an average guy hailing from San Jose, California who loves fast cars and telling stories. While he had a myriad of interests while growing up, he was primarily inspired by his grandfather, Wallace. Wallace Osato ran a successful transcontinental agriculture and logistics company. It was while learning from his grandfather on the job that Jeff Clayton found his passion for discovering and leveraging smart solutions for novel problems.
He was particularly inspired when his grandfather – in the act that cemented his company’s success – figured out a clever and efficient way to transport produce all across the country for mass distribution. Jeff learned a key lesson: that the team responsible for managing shipping logistics was just as important as teams involved in producing products and resources.
Jeff Clayton’s Early Professional Career
As he grew up, Jeff’s interest in problem-solving in overlooked areas never faded. After dropping out from Chapman University in 2019 after two years, Jeff launched a variety of eCommerce businesses, all from his laptop. Over the first couple of years of his professional career, Jeff’s companies generated nearly $3 million in revenue.
But despite this apparent success, Jeff knew that he could do better. He also discovered that drop shipping retailers and customers were experiencing similar issues: overall slow shipping times and substandard quality of delivered goods. The bottom line was that consumers weren’t satisfied.
Jeff sat down and looked at the dropshipping industry’s usual practices. While he and many other entrepreneurs have noted that dropshipping as a general process is fantastic for merchants that need consistent and immediate cash flow, dropshipping is also in need of serious improvement industry-wide in terms of logistics and product quality.
Simply put, he knew that unless dropshipping’s order fulfillment quality and logistics efficiency were upgraded, it wouldn’t take off as an alternative option for consumers, especially when compared to shopping at a retailer that keeps physical stock.
Drophaus – A New Way to Coordinate Dropshipping
Not one to give up, Jeff decided to take things into his own hands and created Drophaus in July 2020 with his business partner, Jason. This new drop shipping logistics company immediately teamed up with a warehouse in China. The company’s goal? Nothing short of revolutionizing the dropshipping logistics and operations industry.
Jeff decided to focus on revitalizing and streamlining the dropshipping shipment process. He worked with his partnered warehouse to procure products for various merchants so they could fulfill their own dropshipping orders.
The company took off. Drophaus now makes dropshipping much simpler for retailers that don’t maintain their own stocks of various products. In addition, Drophaus cuts out the middleman by sending a sourcing team straight to quality manufacturers so that merchants can get the specific, customized products that they’re looking for, all with clear, transparent communication.
In less than a year, Jeff’s new company has achieved an average delivery time of just seven to fourteen days, which is significantly faster than competitor dropshipping companies. But that’s not all – under Jeff’s leadership, Drophaus has managed to make seven figures in revenue, and all without any outside funding.
Now that other companies and dropshipping fulfillers have discovered the good that Drophaus can do for them, more and more are starting to sign on as clients, captivated and intrigued by Jeff Clayton’s entrepreneurial spirit and work ethic. Believe it or not, all of that was done without a dollar spent on marketing – that business comes just from word of mouth.
Jeff Clayton’s Future
What’s next? For now, Jeff is laser-focused on running Drophaus and streamlining his new company so it becomes as profitable and efficient as possible. In the long-term future, Jeff sees himself continuing to reinvent the wider drop shipping logistics industry. With enough success, he even thinks that he’ll be able to convince other dropshippers to adopt many of his methods and techniques.
Who can say what the future holds? One thing is for certain: no matter what happens with Drophaus or dropshipping, Jeff Clayton will be at the forefront of new developments, driving change and innovation even when no one else will.

NEP’s insurance coverage does not provide protection against all significant losses; NEP relies on interconnection, transmission and other pipeline facilities of third parties to deliver energy from its renewable energy projects and to transport natural gas to and from its pipelines. If these facilities become unavailable, NEP’s projects and pipelines may not be able to operate or deliver energy or may become partially or fully unavailable to transport natural gas; NEP’s business is subject to liabilities and operating restrictions arising from environmental, health and safety laws and regulations, compliance with which may require significant capital expenditures, increase NEP’s cost of operations and affect or limit its business plans; NEP’s renewable energy projects or pipelines may be adversely affected by legislative changes or a failure to comply with applicable energy and pipeline regulations; Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex) may claim certain immunities under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act and Mexican law, and the Texas pipeline entities’ ability to sue or recover from Pemex for breach of contract may be limited and may be exacerbated if there is a deterioration in the economic relationship between the U.S. and Mexico; NEP does not own all of the land on which the projects in its portfolio are located and its use and enjoyment of the property may be adversely affected to the extent that there are any lienholders or land rights holders that have rights that are superior to NEP’s rights or the U.S. Bureau of Land Management suspends its federal rights-of-way grants; NEP is subject to risks associated with litigation or administrative proceedings that could materially impact its operations, including, but not limited to, proceedings related to projects it acquires in the future; NEP’s cross-border operations require NEP to comply with anti-corruption laws and regulations of the U.S. government and Mexico; NEP is subject to risks associated with its ownership interests in projects or pipelines that are under construction, which could result in its inability to complete construction projects on time or at all, and make projects too expensive to complete or cause the return on an investment to be less than expected; NEP relies on a limited number of customers and is exposed to the risk that they may be unwilling or unable to fulfill their contractual obligations to NEP or that they otherwise terminate their agreements with NEP; NEP may not be able to extend, renew or replace expiring or terminated power purchase agreements (PPA), natural gas transportation agreements or other customer contracts at favorable rates or on a long-term basis; If the energy production by or availability of NEP’s renewable energy projects is less than expected, they may not be able to satisfy minimum production or availability obligations under their PPAs; NEP’s growth strategy depends on locating and acquiring interests in additional projects consistent with its business strategy at favorable prices; Reductions in demand for natural gas in the United States or Mexico and low market prices of natural gas could materially adversely affect NEP’s pipeline operations and cash flows; Government laws, regulations and policies providing incentives and subsidies for clean energy could be changed, reduced or eliminated at any time and such changes may negatively impact NEP’s growth strategy; NEP’s growth strategy depends on the acquisition of projects developed by NextEra Energy, Inc. (NEE) and third parties, which face risks related to project siting, financing, construction, permitting, the environment, governmental approvals and the negotiation of project development agreements; Acquisitions of existing clean energy projects involve numerous risks; NEP may continue to acquire other sources of clean energy and may expand to include other types of assets. Any further acquisition of non-renewable energy projects may present unforeseen challenges and result in a competitive disadvantage relative to NEP’s more-established competitors; NEP faces substantial competition primarily from regulated utilities, developers, independent power producers, pension funds and private equity funds for opportunities in North America; The natural gas pipeline industry is highly competitive, and increased competitive pressure could adversely affect NEP’s business; NEP may not be able to access sources of capital on commercially reasonable terms, which would have a material adverse effect on its ability to consummate future acquisitions and pursue other growth opportunities; Restrictions in NEP and its subsidiaries’ financing agreements could adversely affect NEP’s business, financial condition, results of operations and ability to make cash distributions to its unitholders; NEP’s cash distributions to its unitholders may be reduced as a result of restrictions on NEP’s subsidiaries’ cash distributions to NEP under the terms of their indebtedness or other financing agreements; NEP’s subsidiaries’ substantial amount of indebtedness may adversely affect NEP’s ability to operate its business, and its failure to comply with the terms of its subsidiaries’ indebtedness could have a material adverse effect on NEP’s financial condition; NEP is exposed to risks inherent in its use of interest rate swaps; NEE has influence over NEP; Under the cash sweep and credit support agreement, NEP receives credit support from NEE and its affiliates. NEP’s subsidiaries may default under contracts or become subject to cash sweeps if credit support is terminated, if NEE or its affiliates fail to honor their obligations under credit support arrangements, or if NEE or another credit support provider ceases to satisfy creditworthiness requirements, and NEP will be required in certain circumstances to reimburse NEE for draws that are made on credit support; NextEra Energy Resources, LLC (NEER) or one of its affiliates is permitted to borrow funds received by NEP’s subsidiaries and is obligated to return these funds only as needed to cover project costs and distributions or as demanded by NextEra Energy Operating Partners, LP (NEP OpCo). NEP’s financial condition and ability to make distributions to its unitholders, as well as its ability to grow distributions in the future, is highly dependent on NEER’s performance of its obligations to return all or a portion of these funds; NEER’s right of first refusal may adversely affect NEP’s ability to consummate future sales or to obtain favorable sale terms; NextEra Energy Partners GP, Inc. (NEP GP) and its affiliates may have conflicts of interest with NEP and have limited duties to NEP and its unitholders; NEP GP and its affiliates and the directors and officers of NEP are not restricted in their ability to compete with NEP, whose business is subject to certain restrictions; NEP may only terminate the Management Services Agreement among, NEP, NextEra Energy Management Partners, LP (NEE Management), NEP OpCo and NextEra Energy Operating Partners GP, LLC (NEP OpCo GP) under certain limited circumstances; If the agreements with NEE Management or NEER are terminated, NEP may be unable to contract with a substitute service provider on similar terms; NEP’s arrangements with NEE limit NEE’s potential liability, and NEP has agreed to indemnify NEE against claims that it may face in connection with such arrangements, which may lead NEE to assume greater risks when making decisions relating to NEP than it otherwise would if acting solely for its own account; NEP’s ability to make distributions to its unitholders depends on the ability of NEP OpCo to make cash distributions to its limited partners; If NEP incurs material tax liabilities, NEP’s distributions to its unitholders may be reduced, without any corresponding reduction in the amount of the IDR fee; Holders of NEP’s units may be subject to voting restrictions; NEP’s partnership agreement replaces the fiduciary duties that NEP GP and NEP’s directors and officers might have to holders of its common units with contractual standards governing their duties and the NYSE does not require a publicly traded limited partnership like NEP to comply with certain of its corporate governance requirements; NEP’s partnership agreement restricts the remedies available to holders of NEP’s common units for actions taken by NEP’s directors or NEP GP that might otherwise constitute breaches of fiduciary duties; Certain of NEP’s actions require the consent of NEP GP; Holders of NEP’s common units currently cannot remove NEP GP without NEE’s consent and provisions in NEP’s partnership agreement may discourage or delay an acquisition of NEP that NEP unitholders may consider favorable; NEE’s interest in NEP GP and the control of NEP GP may be transferred to a third party without unitholder consent; NEP may issue additional units without unitholder approval, which would dilute unitholder interests; Reimbursements and fees owed to NEP GP and its affiliates for services provided to NEP or on NEP’s behalf will reduce cash distributions from NEP OpCo and from NEP to NEP’s unitholders, and there are no limits on the amount that NEP OpCo may be required to pay; Increases in interest rates could adversely impact the price of NEP’s common units, NEP’s ability to issue equity or incur debt for acquisitions or other purposes and NEP’s ability to make cash distributions to its unitholders; The liability of holders of NEP’s units, which represent limited partnership interests in NEP, may not be limited if a court finds that unitholder action constitutes control of NEP’s business; Unitholders may have liability to repay distributions that were wrongfully distributed to them; The issuance of securities convertible into, or settleable with, common units may affect the market price for NEP’s common units, will dilute common unitholders’ ownership in NEP and may decrease the amount of cash available for distribution for each common unit; NEP’s future tax liability may be greater than expected if NEP does not generate net operating losses (NOLs) sufficient to offset taxable income or if tax authorities challenge certain of NEP’s tax positions; NEP’s ability to use NOLs to offset future income may be limited; NEP will not have complete control over NEP’s tax decisions; Distributions to unitholders may be taxable as dividends; and, The coronavirus pandemic may have a material adverse impact on NEP’s business, financial condition, liquidity, results of operations and ability to make cash distributions to its unitholders. NEP discusses these and other risks and uncertainties in its annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020 and other SEC filings, and this news release should be read in conjunction with such SEC filings made through the date of this news release. The forward-looking statements made in this news release are made only as of the date of this news release and NEP undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements.

Adventech Explains The Maxeff Inrush Current and LRC (Locked Rotor Current) Difference
Limitation and Disadvantages:
- High Inrush current can cause nuisance tripping of protective devices or cause motor damage.
- It can also cause voltage dips in the supply line (which can affect other equipment), or even prevent the motor from starting properly.
- High Inrush current also leads to high torque production at start up — sometimes as much as twice the rated torque — which can cause sudden, severe acceleration that damages mechanical loads.
- The amount of current drawn by the motor during startup is also influenced by the resistance of the stator windings. Newer, high-efficiency motors — such as IE3 premium efficiency versions — have lower winding resistance (to reduce I2R losses), so Inrush current can be an even more significant problem in these designs than in older, lower-efficiency motors.
The Maxeff motor is a combination of two circuits – motor and generator. Whereas the motor circuit is directly connected to power and the generator circuit is 180 phase out. When the motor is connected DOL (Direct On Line), the motoring circuits come into action which draws a lower current since it utilizes only 2/3rd of the winding, limiting higher Inrush current. Once the generator circuit is excited, the motor comes into a full circuit. At that point, the motor’s speed is increased which does not demand a high Inrush current and still has higher LRC (Locked Rotor Current). *Refer to Advanced Energy Test Report. As the motor obtains full speed and is stabilized, LRC is settled to a normal rated current like that of a standard motor. See Figure 2.
The switching phenomenon is exclusive to the Maxeff motor as it limits the high Inrush current and still has higher LRC (Locked Rotor Current), as well as torque, as compared to a standard premium motor.
Advantage Over a Standard Motor:
i) Protection against nuisance tripping of protective devices
ii) Voltage Dips
iii) Load Protection
iv) Maxeff motors have lower winding resistance (to reduce I²R losses). Due to its two internal circuits (motor and generator) and its switching phenomenon, it overcomes the high Inrush current compared to that of standard premium motors.
