Project overview

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.
The Solution
Reduction in Newscorp’s demand charges.
