Power Factor explained and how livestock farmers can save on energy

Recent research by Greengage identified that a poultry producer was spending over £60K ($80K) annually on Reactive Power charges.

Reactive Power (kVAr) is necessary to run commercial electrical equipment like our ALIS™ Power Hubs.

Reactive power explained
Power Factor rating of less than 0.9 creates too much froth (Reactive Power), and therefore additional utility charges

Think of commercial energy consumption as a latte coffee or pint of lager, where a Power Factor rating of less than 0.9 creates too much useless froth (Reactive Power), and therefore additional utility charges.

Our ALIS™ Power Hubs have a Power Factor of 0.95 which produces the optimum amount of ‘froth’ (Reactive Power) with zero or minimal kVAr charges.
