Are you burning money too? Your company could be losing 40% or your Power factor might be good?

Every business is different, and we’ve measured many over the years. The average loss over all companies we’ve recorded is 22%. That's right, before our help for every R1000 these companies spent on electricity there were losing R220.

And that's just the average.

We’ve also worked with companies that were losing as much as 40% of all their electricity. Yes, R400 in every R1000 being lost to poor power factor.

This problem might be invisible to you. But every year in South Africa alone 100’s of Millions of kwh's of electricity are lost by businesses like yours.

It passes the meter, you pay for it, and then you lose it.

How much electricity are you losing?
That depends on what you currently spend each month. But the key variable is your Power Factor (PF) and that will determine the size of your Reactive Losses.

  • Even with average losses of just 22%. Your R25,000/monthly electricity bill will results in annual Reactive Losses of R66,000. And that's every year.

  • But if you spend R100,000/month and have 30% Reactive Losses. Your annual losses will amount to R360,000 this year.

Your company could be losing as much as 40%. Or your Power Factor might be good. But you'll never know until you test and measure it for yourself.

On our homepage you'll find calculators to estimate your own Reactive Losses. After you've used them be sure to get in touch with us for more information.
