Increase the Quality of Your Power Through Power Factor Correction

New York Data Center Saves Thanks to Efficiency Solution

What is Power Factor?

As an energy consumer your business receives power from the grid at 100%. But as that power travels through your building’s electrical blueprint and gets used by various equipment, lights, machines, and so on, it loses its effectiveness. Your power factor is a measure of how effectively you use your power. A high power factor means electrical power is used efficiently and effectively. A low power factor signals that the electrical power you pay for is used poorly and inefficiently.

While not all utilities have a designated power factor charge as a line item on your bill, if your power factor is low you’re paying additional fees for it because the utility is required to compensate for any businesses with a poor power factor. 

So It Was With A New York Data Center:

To drive down expenses, data centers continually focus on their energy efficiency, also known as P.U.E. But one data center in NY was having a hard time driving down energy costs. With thousands of servers running simultaneously around the clock, their computer room air conditioners were using up a lot of energy. One look at their readings told us why: POOR POWER FACTOR. Through our unique power factor solution, we were able to re-balance their power factor, improving it by an average of 14.68%, while reducing their demand by an average of 14.33%, saving them $4,000 in monthly cost. 

The Result

A 15% improvement in power factor.

Energy efficiency and improved P.U.E.

$48,000 in annual energy savings.
