The Carbon Trust identified power factor correction as a proven energy saving technology to improve electrical efficiency and remove penalties from the electricity bills and although Power Factor Correction had been installed many years ago, the system was non functional and now underrated for their present operation.
We carried out a combination of repairs and modifications to the old existing equipment resulting in an ROI of less than four months, returned carbon savings of 6.8 tons per annum and achieve and overall electrical efficiency of around 99% from a poor 80% before correction.
