Supply Utilisation Chart


Supply Utilisation 

Demand can also be measured in kVA, which takes into account the power factor of a site.  For a site with a power factor of one, the demand in kW will equal the demand in kVA. For a power factor of less than one, the kVA demand will be greater than the kW demand. The authorised supply capacity (ASC) is the maximum demand the site can draw from the grid as agreed with the energy supplier. ASC and demand are unique to electricity meters, and so this chart is only available for electricity.

The Supply Utilisation bar chart shows the average power factor, maximum demand in kVA, and authorised supply capacity (ASC) for an electricity meter (or set of meters) over a specific time period. This information can be very useful for clients to see if they are exceeding their ASC (which incurs excess capacity charges on electricity bills), or if the ASC can be safely reduced (saving monthly ASC costs on electricity bills).
