Power Factor Correction Calculators

Many utilities impose a penalty for a low power factor. This penalty may not be readily apparent on your bill. If your utility increases electrical rates for a low power factor, there can be significant savings by increasing your power factor. Consult with your utility to determine if you are paying a power factor penalty.
