Hello all from a long time lurker!
I have been approached by a rep from a small local company trying to sell us a Power Factor Optimizer, claiming 25% to 33% energy savings on our bills (residential and industrial).
Last I had heard, power factor was a minor issue in residential systems, however they are claiming 25% savings.
This power factor optimization "reduces the amount of electricity drawn from the utility by capturing the otherwise lost electricity in its Capacitors and sending that electricity back into the circuit."
Is this worth looking into further or is it deceptive?
