What is a Network Demand Charge?

In addition to standard energy charges (blue line), many businesses are also being hit with a Network Demand Charge, which is measured in “kVA” on your bill (yellow line).

While renewables like solar and LED lighting can help reduce standard energy charges, they do little to minimise the Network Demand Charge, which represents the maximum amount of energy required at any one point to run appliances and equipment.

To significantly reduce your maximum demand, your equipment must use electricity more efficiently. This can be achieved through Edge’s PowerSave power factor correction unit.
