What is reactive energy?
Reactive power is defined as the form of additional energy required for the production and maintenance of the magnetic fields of the motors and transformers of an electric network.
Reactive energy has no beneficial effect.
From a technological perspective, reactive energy is not useful, and actually has many associated disadvantages: overheating engines, power circuits, transformers, and a higher electricity bill. Reactive energy is closely related to the coefficient called power factor.
Do I pay for reactive energy even if I do not use it for personal consumption?
Yes, reactive energy is payable.
Without reactive power compensation you get a flaw in the system and hence higher costs recorded on the electricity bill.
What do we do? We stop the unjustified increase in the level of reactive energy and we make sure we maintain the intervals set by the relevant A.N.R.E. norms. We set up specific equipment and find satisfactory solutions for you, but not before conducting an energy study in order to set our benchmarks and to identify the activities that are needed to achieve optimal reactive power compensation. Compensation and adjustment are equivalent concepts: what you can count on is the fact that this also helps increase the lifespan of the electrical equipment powered by your network.
