Power Factor Correction: Why pay for energy that can’t be used?
For instance, many customers aren’t aware that – as well as the power that is used in equipment (real power) – a site may draw power that is not directly used (reactive power). The combination of the two is known as apparent power. Power Factor is the relationship between real and apparent power (kVA). If your site has a poor power factor, you could be paying for energy that cannot be used.
The AGL Electroserv team of experts specialise in helping our clients reduce kVA. By designing, manufacturing, installing and servicing Power Factor Correction equipment nationally, we may be able to extend the life of your equipment, ensure compliance with regulatory codes, or help ensure that more power is available for site expansion without the need for new switchboards and cabling.
