Do capacitor systems really save energy?

Overview:

This white paper discusses if a capacitor system can be installed and if it can save a significant percentage of electrical energy consumption, or energy cost.

Power factor is a measurement of electrical system efficiency. Many utilities have a power factor penalty built into their rate structure to penalize users with a low power factor reading in their electrical system. To improve the power factor, the most common solution is to install a capacitor system. How much energy and cost can the capacitor save for the end user? This white paper discusses if a capacitor system can be installed and if it can save a significant percentage of electrical energy consumption, or energy cost.
