Power Factor Correction is a measure of how efficiently electrical power is consumed and is defined by the ratio between the power that is actually used (kW) and the power that is actually supplied (kVA).
A power factor close to 1.00 will ensure the power bill is as low as possible.
There are numerous benefits to be gained from equipment installations;
Power consumption reduced.
Half-hourly and hourly metered electricity bills reduced.
Lower contracted tariff.
Reactive power penalties removed.
Electrical energy efficiency improved.
Extra VA availability from the existing supply.
Mains cables may be reduced in size, saving you money.
Extended equipment life due to reduced heating.
Equipment such as motors will run smoother.
Lighting will be brighter and less prone to dimming.
Less site maintenance required.
Continuity of service.
Greenhouse emissions reduced.
Increased environmental reputation.
Power Factor Correction will deliver immediate results whilst payback can usually be achieved within a couple of years. However, the technology is not simple and you should consult a specialist before installing.
