POWER FACTOR CORRECTION. Mega Watt Power specialises in solar power, true….but that’s not all we do.

In an electric power system, a load with a low power factor draws more current than a load with a high power factor for the same amount of useful power transferred. The larger currents increase the energy lost in the distribution system and requires larger wires and other equipment. Because of the costs of larger equipment and wasted energy, electrical utilities will usually charge a higher cost to industrial or commercial customers where there is a low power factor.

Power Factor Correction is an important necessity for large electricity accounts. Industrial and commercial electrical loads can cause unwanted phase shifts between Voltage and Current.

The bigger the phase shift, the greater the cost penalty on your electricity bill.
