Many utility companies penalize commercial customers for poor power factor, which is a result of heavy motor usage, causing electrical inefficiencies. Power factor can be corrected through installation of capacitors, which is a service offered by Eric Ryan Corporation. Our engineers will perform a savings vs. cost analysis for installation of capacitors to correct power factor. If analysis is favorable and client decides to proceed, Eric Ryan Corporation’s engineers will install capacitor banks or provide detailed specifications for installation by client or a third party contractor. In the event of capital expenditure limitations, Eric Ryan Corporation may be able to offer financing or aid in finding third party financing.
