A domestic electricity meter will only read the Real Power load, so Power Factor doesn’t appear to have any impact on our bills. But any wasted energy due to poor Power Factor does have to be accounted for back at the power plant by the burning of more fuel. And as we look more towards renewable energy and the potential for battery storage of electricity, the Apparent Power requirement of a device becomes vitally important. And we can’t afford to waste energy in this way. In our ELMER brand we have a POWER FACTOR of >0.95 as actuals.
