German term or phrase: Schieflast
From webpage from company offering equipment to reduce energy bills from industrial and commercial usage of lighting.

Und zwar...

Die Anlage enthält 3 Spezialtransformatoren aus eigener Produktion. Deswegen wird auch bei Schieflast die Einsparung erreicht.

1) What does Schieflast mean?
2) Does aus eigener Produktion mean that the company produces this themselves?
