What is Power Factor?
Your power factor is the ratio between the real power your business requires and the apparent power required in order to supply it. If you have a good power factor, then your systems are running efficiently and your distributor is supplying you with only the power you require.
If you have poor power factor, you need to be supplied more apparent power in order to receive enough real power to run your equipment.
Ideally, Power Factor will be as close to 1 as possible. Generally, a Power Factor of 0.97 or below is classed as “Poor Power Factor” and the Network Operator will penalise the business accordingly.
How can you improve your Power Factor?
This is where Cherry can help. We can install Power Factor Correction equipment to reduce the amount of kVAs your business is supplied from your distributor and lower the demand charge on your bill. Power Factors can often be as poor as 0.5. The poorer the Power Factor, the bigger the benefit of installing a Power Factor Correction Unit and the quicker the payback. Anything below 0.95 and there is likely to be a strong case for a Power Factor Correction Unit (particularly in QLD and rural NSW).
* Energy retailers source electricity from different sources. Please review each company’s corporate policy to make sure they support renewable energy sourcing

Why should you switch?

Can you switch energy retailers?
Anyone who is connected to the electricity grid can switch energy retailers at any time. If you are currently in a contract with an electricity retailer, you can find out from them whether there are any exit fees when you leave but ultimately, they can’t stop you from switching.
