What Industries Benefit Most from Power Factor Correction

What Industries Benefit Most from Power Factor Correction

3 months ago
Power factor correction (PFC) offers advantages to any business that relies on electricity, but some industries see even greater benefits due to the nature of their electrical loads. Here’s a breakdown of industries that can reap the most rewards from PFC: Manufacturing: Heavy motor usage: Manufacturing facilities are full of motors powering machinery. These motors […]

What is considered an “Optimal” Power Factor?

1 year ago
An optimal power factor rating depends on the specific electrical system and the goals of the operator. In general, a power factor rating close to unity (1.0) is considered optimal/Energy Efficient because it indicates that the electrical system is using power efficiently and effectively. Power factor is a measure of how effectively electrical power is […]

Do you know what your facility Power Factor is?

1 year ago
A majority of company owners and facility managers are not aware of what their Power Factor number is. While some may know- even fewer know what it means.  A general assumption could be: “a low power factor implies low power consumption, meaning a lower electricity bill”- which is far from correct. Power Factor is an […]

Power Factor Penalties for Not Maintaining Energy Efficiency

2 years ago
A significant percentage of companies pay a fee/surcharge related to, what’s called, their Power Factor Rating in their monthly energy bill. Most don’t realize it. Unless the bill is way out of a normal range your company CFO, Controller, Accounts Payable, etc. staff aren’t familiar with energy bill terminology and this fee likely goes unnoticed.   […]

Energy Efficiency Through Power Factor Correction is Nothing New

2 years ago
The script below is taken from an bulletin published 26 years ago in September 1996 and now displayed on the www.energy.gov website: Low power factor is expensive and inefficient. Many utility companies charge an additional fee if your power factor is less than 0.95. Low power factor also reduces your electrical system’s distribution capacity by […]

The Sizing Process

2 years ago
The process is non-disruptive, and begins with sizing each motor load enabling us to precisely measure the proper amount of capacitance and harmonic filtering needed to take the circuit back to unity. Once complete, we will provide a free energy analysis of the facility using the data collected. Energy Efficiency Group often finds other areas […]

Barriers to Energy Efficiency

3 years ago
There are many contributors to a company operating at peak efficiency- from staff to technical to financial constraints, etc… The barriers to a company’s facilities operating efficiently are evident when the above factors are not in balance.  While most organizations operate profitably despite their electrical utility operational inefficiencies, the burden of energy waste, lost income, […]
