Newscorp’s Brisbane Print Centre had their tariff changed which meant that Energex started penalising them for having a poor power factor.
The result was a significant increase in Newscorp’s power costs.
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.
Reduction in Newscorp’s demand charges.
