The Problem

Newscorp’s Brisbane Print Centre had their tariff changed which meant that Energex started penalising them for having a poor power factor.

03

The Consequences

The result was a significant increase in Newscorp’s power costs.

Our Solution

We analysed Newscorp’s electricity account. This helped us determine that they required over 3,500 kVar of capacitor banks over six substations in order to achieve the required Power Factor which would maximise their power savings.
