"If each of Con Edison’s customers would use power factor correction in order to increase their efficiency, the energy savings alone could be the equivalent of 32,600 tons of carbon dioxide emissions."
New York, NY (Vocus/PRWEB) January 26, 2011
Beginning this month New York’s large commercial Con Edison electric customers will begin seeing a charge on their bills for reactive power. On the positive side of the scope commercial customers enlist the help of companies such as U.S. Power Services Company in an effort to raise their power factor to a minimum over 95 percent, they will be able to reduce and possibly eliminate the new charge for reactive power. When a company takes steps to raise the power factor they are able to reduce the amount of energy they use.
Companies that have low power factors suffer from voltage drops as well as losses of power within the distribution system. These excessive voltage drops can cause those systems to overheat and prematurely burn out motors, cables and other equipment. Using power factor correction will minimize the fluctuations in voltage and reduce the amount of electricity the grid loses. Power factor correction is not just for the Fortune 500 companies; it is also for small companies that are just looking to save money on their energy bills.
Power factor correction will also reduce the amount of carbon emissions that enter the earth’s atmosphere. "If each of Con Edison’s customers would use power factor correction in order to increase their efficiency, the energy savings alone could be the equivalent of 32,600 tons of carbon dioxide emissions."
The process of achieving power factor correction is not a difficult one with the most important step being the addition of power factor correction capacitors to the existing system in order to decrease the demand for reactive power and increase the power factor. U.S. Power Services Company (USPSC) is one of the leading providers of power factor correction and has a team with well over 18 years experience in the field of power factor correction. They have helped thousands of customers save millions of dollars in energy costs while at the same time helping them reduce the amount of carbon emissions that enter the atmosphere.
U.S. Power Services Company (USPSC) has confidence in their ability to help your company save energy every month. In fact, they are so confident in the reliability of power factor correction that they are willing to conduct a free analysis to show how much a business can save and guarantee the savings.
