Power factor is a measure of how effectively your equipment at your site uses electricity. In technical terms, it is the ratio of the working power (kW) to the apparent power (kVA) supplied to your site.Think of a glass of beer, made up of amber liquid and froth. As you pay for the whole glass of beer, you want more of the amber liquid and less froth to get value for money. Poor power factor is like a beer with too much froth, with the froth representing wasted energy, and money. Networks charge large businesses for the demand they place on the electricity grid. So if you’re being charged a network demand charge, it pays to improve your power factor.
Reduce the amount you pay in network demand charges by improving your power factor and correcting supply inefficiencies. Our team can advise on the best equipment for your business.
