Project overview

Quality Energy have a long and proud history working at Newscorp’s major print centres around the country. As soon as Energex changed the demand tariffs in South East Queensland, we helped identify the large savings on offer for the business.

Newscorp’s Brisbane Print Centre had their tariff changed which meant that Energex started penalising them for having a poor power factor.
The Problem
The result was a significant increase in Newscorp’s power costs.
The Consequences
We analysed Newscorp’s electricity account. This helped us determine that they required over 3,500 kVar of capacitor banks over six substations in order to achieve the required Power Factor which would maximise their power savings.

Project Outcomes

Given the high cost of demand charges on businesses electricity accounts, all clients with a poor power factor will experience much higher electricity charges than they should be paying. This is no different for Newscorp and that site is now running as efficiently as possible.
