Power Factor explained and how livestock farmers can save on energy and reduce energy bills

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.
