Why Power Factor Correction?

 

Reduced cost

Installing a custom-built power factor capacitor bank minimises wasted energy, improves plant efficiency and ultimately saves you money.

 

Increase electrical system capacity

Rectify any overloading issues you have and benefit from the opportunity to expand your plant without upgrading transformer or supply equipment.

Get the most out of what you pay for

Inefficient electrical systems tend to use a large quantity of ‘reactive’ power (kVAr), which represents the power lost in the operation of inductive equipment such as electric motors and transformers.

Positive impacts on the environment

Power factor correction makes existing utility electricity more efficient and delivers significant energy reductions, providing considerable environmental benefits.

What is the Energy Efficient Communities (EEC) Grant?

The Energy Efficiency Communities (EEC) Grant provides small-to-medium businesses in the food and beverage manufacturing sector up to $25,000 to improve energy efficiency practices and technologies and better manage energy consumption to reduce their power bills.

The objective of the grant opportunity is to support small and medium sized food and beverage manufacturing enterprises to save energy by:

  • replacing existing equipment with more energy efficient equipment
  • installing or replacing components to help existing systems run more efficiently
  • carrying out energy audits
  • monitoring and optimising energy use and emissions
  • increasing knowledge of energy efficiency practices, and
  • positioning small and medium sized enterprises to adopt future technological advancement in energy consumption.

 

Power Factor Correction is one of the eligible focus areas for businesses applying for the grant.

Terms and conditions apply. See business.gov.au to apply and the full details of eligibility for funding.
