Demand charges will increase from 1 July 2016 for CitiPower & Powercor customers

CitiPower and Powercor are the distribution networks for almost 1.1 million customers in Victoria, covering over half the state including Melbourne CBD and all Western districts. They will be introducing a new way of calculating the demand charges on electricity bills for large energy users after 1 July. Sites with a low Power Factor (less than 0.95) will typically incur increased charges on their electricity bills.

Improving low Power Factor is easy through the installation of Power Factor Correction equipment, and Out Performers can help you with this.

Not a CityPower or Powercor customer? If the Network Charges on your electricity bills are more than 50% of the total bill, you may benefit from Power Factor Correction as well.

Out Performers has a three step solution to deliver the best outcome on Power Factor Correction for your site.

Our free assessment includes analysing your energy data to calculate:

  • What your liability would be under the new tariff,
  • How much you would save if your site improved its Power Factor, and,
  • Whether installing Power Factor Correction equipment would be cost-effective
    for your business, or if other demand reduction strategies would be a better option.

Our solution also includes free energy monitoring for 12 months, so you will be guaranteed improved Power Factor and lower bills. We are the only PFC solution provider to offer this free monitoring service.
