CFL power factor and how to correct? Answered
I have installed solar pv on my house and using a killawatt meter I have been checking the power factor and they are pretty bad .7. Residential metering dont charge for power factor but when the solar pv is operating I believe the losses are coming from the pv power generated. Does anyone know of a CFL with a good power factor? I have heard that the power factor for the CFL's could be corrected with a .50 cent part. I believe that would be a capacitor but what size and how could you add it? ?
