Parliamentary support for Power Capacitors
Power Capacitors were very pleased to welcome Birmingham Yardley M.P. John Hemming last week to help them celebrate 40 years in business. He was treated to a tour of the facility and an introduction to the technology of Power Factor Correction. He was suitably impressed with savings available in both carbon and cash when industrial customers utilise the technology. Established in 1973, long before the mainstream carbon reduction agenda hit the headlines, the huge part that the company has played in the carbon reduction scenario is almost impossible to calculate. “We have an idea how much product we have sold over 40 years, but not how much is still in operation. Although we are proud to say that we have customers still running cubicles containing original components that were installed in 1977!” said Sales Manager Tim Brown. “The total carbon dioxide reduction could realistically be as much as 4 million tonnes. With most Power Capacitor products producing a two year return on investment whilst at the same time energy costs are unlikely to reduce, it’s easy to see how attractive a proposition Power Factor Correction is.”
John Hemming MP is certainly qualified to agree as amongst his many talents he specialised in Atomic & Nuclear physics at University and was naturally impressed by the technology involved.
“We are all naturally concerned about the impact of global warming and rising energy costs in this country.” He said “Power Factor Correction is proving to have had a significant impact in both these areas and will continue to do so. I would like to congratulate Power Capacitors on celebrating 40 years in business”
