Power Factor Correction
Rates for large power facilities are designed to encourage customers to maintain a certain power factor. Poor power factor causes excess current to flow through power delivery equipment and can lead to increased operating and capital expenses for both the customer and the REMC.
Adding capacitors can raise power factors to acceptable percentages and eliminate penalties built into the rate design. It also can help increase plant capacity.
In 2000, the REMC implemented a turnkey Power Factor Correction program. With the assistance of a local engineering firm, we review the power factor history, monitor the harmonic content of the voltage and current in your facility and provide a cost analysis.
Electric service from the REMC is reliable. When outages do occur, the REMC tries to make repairs as fast as possible. But the truth of the matter is that restoration of electric service may take more time than you have to give…especially in inclement weather.
The REMC can provide you with a turnkey UPS (uninterrupted power supply) system and/or back-up generation program. We offer sizing and specification of the system as well as third party financing.
Lighting is a significant portion of many businesses’ energy use. The REMC offers an on-site lighting audit that can reduce your energy costs and improve illumination by offering new lighting technologies. Third party financing can also be arranged.
