    No, I have no specific experience with that product, but I think what they
    are suggesting is utter nonsense. Unless you are generating your own power,
    there is no way that a bum power factor is costing you anything like 10% to 25%
    that they suggest. Your meter charges you only for true power. With some minor
    exceptions, (which we can discuss if you wish) power factor is mostly a problem
    for your power utility to worry about.

    And large factories etc esp using lots of motors.

    The company in question should be prosecuted for fraud.
