All irrigation services 20 horsepower and greater will be affected by our policy requiring the assessment of a power factor adjustment on services with a power factor less than 93%. Customers that choose to improve their power factors will avoid the power factor adjustment by installing capacitors that improve power factor to 93% or greater.
To achieve the advantage of improved power factor, capacitor installations must be complete by June 1, 2022.
CALCULATE YOUR POTENTIAL POWER FACTOR ADJUSTMENT
Input your data into the POWER FACTOR CALCULATOR. The calculator will provide you with the potential adjustment across the entire range of Irrigation Rates. You can match the calculation to your current rate and see what the difference would be if you switch to a different rate level.
CAPACITOR INSTALLATION REBATES
A $100 rebate is available for the installation of a capacitor. Learn more about the guidelines and download the application form HERE.
