Submersible Installation… How much does it cost?

One of the more confusing things about electricity is how it’s measured and how we pay for it. This issue of Franklin AID will clear up some misunderstandings about electrical power, especially in terms of calculating the electrical cost of operating a submersible pump. As part of this, we’ll examine the phase relationship between voltage and current, otherwise known as power factor. We’ll learn that power consumption is not just about amp draw, but is a combination of voltage, current and power factor. Continue reading
