Knoxville, TN (Vocus/PRWEB) February 01, 2011
U.S. Power Services Company recently won the contract with AMC Theatres to install power factor correction capacitors at over 35 locations. The most recent installations involved 13 AMC Theatres.
There are many different factors that contribute to the savings amounts each theater is likely to experience. Some of the factors that contribute to the savings per theater include size of that specific theater and its electrical usage. In addition each electrical utility company has its own billing factors and structures that will also have an affect on the savings. With everything considered, the average savings per location is estimated to be between $10,000 and $25,000 annually for each location.
AMC Theatres goes back to the early 1900s when brothers Maurice, Edward and Barney Dubinsky settled in Kansas City, Missouri and purchased the Regent Theatre in 1920. They changed the family name to Durwood and called the company Durwood Theatres. Edward later developed the company into a highly successful chain of movie houses and drive-in theatres.
Like many companies today, AMC Theatres is looking to find ways to save money and keep its profit margin in the black. Investing in power factor correction allows the company to save money during the current recession and it also allows AMC Theatres to become part of the growing number of companies that are seeking to do their part in lowering the carbon emissions in the atmosphere.
Power factor correction is a process that allows a company to increase the efficiency of the electrical power it uses. Most systems only work at approximately 75 percent efficiency, but with power factor correction a customer’s system can operate at close to 100 percent efficiency thus reducing the amount of power it needs.
