Background to problem you will help solve
In other countries like the UK and Northern Europe the electricity infrastructure has received continual investment and development. But in Africa the electricity infrastructure is outdated, poorly maintained and leaking like a bucket full of holes.
Across Southern Africa 100’s of Millions of kw’s (billions of dollars in value) are lost every year. This waste of electricity is called Reactive Loss – we also call it Power Factor.
If you don’t already know about Power Factor Correction, you can read more about it here: What is Power Factor Correction.
This is the summary:
ZESCO conducted their own Power Factor surveys since 1995. And according to their report “80 percent of the clients surveyed operate at a Power Factor of 0.5 to 0.8” Meaning 8 out of 10 companies measured are losing somewhere between 20% and 50% of all electricity.
Every business is different, and our own detailed recordings show an average loss over all companies of 22%. We’ve also helped companies that were wasting as much as 40% of all their electricity.
About our products
Our PFC Technology eliminates Reactive Losses and substantially reduces the energy costs of the companies we help.
The savings our units make depend on the size of the company, the annual electricity spend and the Power Factor. Typically our units have a pay-back time of 12 months or less.
The use of diesel generators to replace lost mains power is rapidly increasing across the region. We are proud to say that our Power Factor Correction Equipment is the only technology available anywhere that works with generators to help African Companies save on diesel fuel costs.
The continued increases in fuel costs (electricity and diesel), plus the introduction of fines for companies making reactive losses means our products are more valuable, important and in demand than ever before.
About The Opportunity
Our mission is to find and help African Companies to improve their power factor and substantially reduce their ever increasing electricity and diesel energy costs.
Your opportunity is to grow and develop your own territory within Zambia.
Full support and training will be provided both on the ground and from the technical team based at the plant.
