• Most larger and industrial scale sites will have additional charges on their electricity bill, sometimes called ‘Reactive Power Charges’
• Are you running close to your supply capacity, perhaps even occasionally blowing fuses?
• Do you need to add new equipment but don’t think you have enough spare capacity?
Eco-Max Power Factor Correction (PFC) may be the answer.
Most businesses will have some inductive loads that leads to its supply having poor power factor and this can lead to your electricity supplier charging additional ‘reactive power charges’ and ‘service capacity charges’, in addition to your standard KWhr charges itemised on your electricity bills. Even if you haven’t noticed these charges yet, as suppliers utilise more of their smart meters functions, most are gradually beginning to add these charges and we have seen some bills rise over 20% overnight.
Poor power factor also means unnecessary increased current is drawn from the supply and the threat of blowing main fuses if the supply capacity is exceeded.
Installing Eco-Max Power Factor Correction will reduce your overall power consumption, leading to lower electricity bills and reduced charges. Due to the effects of power stabilisation, heat reduction, and voltage drop reductions there will be an overall improvement in power quality resulting in increased life expectancy of electrical equipment and leading to an increase in your supply spare capacity.
Generally installed at the main incoming supply point all our Power Factor Correction solutions are bespoke and tailored to a specific site’s requirements. Our units are manufactured in the UK, using quality components and steel enclosures to prevent corrosion and exposure to harsh environments.
With Eco-Max Power bespoke range the active PFC system can be built integral to the Voltage optimiser system for a comprehensive site specific power quality energy saving solution.
