For large energy users, network charges can make up a considerable proportion of energy bills. Demand charges* are a component of network charges and are based on both the real and apparent power requirements of sites.
Any given site with a poor Power Factor is likely to pay higher demand charges than one with a good Power Factor. Businesses with a poor Power Factor are typically associated with having operations with significant inductive loads such as transformers and electric motors.

With Origin’s Power Factor Flex™ model you can start reducing your demand charges by installing a power correction unit at no cost to you.
First, we’ll have a Power Factor Correction unit tailored to your site.
You’ll pay $0 upfront for the Power Correction unit.
We’ll maintain and monitor the unit to ensure optimal performance.
