In Zimbabwe, the agricultural industry plays a vital role in the country’s economy. However, many farmers are facing significant energy costs that eat into their profits. This is where power factor correction comes in, offering a solution that can help reduce energy expenditure and maximise profits for agricultural businesses.
The Benefits of Power Factor Correction for Agricultural Businesses
Power factor correction helps businesses to utilise energy more efficiently. It works by reducing the amount of reactive power required to run equipment, which in turn reduces the overall amount of energy consumed. By optimising energy usage, agricultural businesses can lower their electricity bills and improve their bottom line.
Reducing the Cost of Running your Diesel Fuel Generators
Diesel generators are often used as backup power sources for businesses in Zimbabwe, particularly those in remote areas where power outages are frequent. However, the cost of fuel for these generators can quickly add up, especially for businesses that require constant power.
OPP’s solutions will reduce the cost of running diesel generators by at least 10%, but we’ve also helped companies in Zimbabwe reduce their diesel costs by as much as 30%.
Eliminating Reactive Energy Charges with OPP
In addition to reducing energy consumption, OPP’s power factor correction solutions can also help agricultural businesses to eliminate reactive energy charges. Reactive energy is the energy used to power equipment with motors, pumps and fans, but does not contribute to the actual work being done. Reactive energy charges can be costly for agricultural businesses, and power factor correction can help to reduce or eliminate these charges, resulting in significant savings.
