Efforts to save on the use of electric power are absolutely necessary in industries, institutions, and households. As the demand for electricity increases, there must be steps to overcome it. Inductive load with low power factor, the load current is getting bigger so it needs improvement in power factor. PLN imposes kVARh fines on customers. The purpose of this study is to overcome power losses at a hospital in Tangerang Regency as an effort to save electricity usage costs by installing capacitor banks. This tool serves as an electricity saver to reduce reactive power in electric loads. From the results of the comparative study of the power factor before repair cos φ1 0.67 and the power factor after repair, namely cos φ2 0.96 greatly affects the value of the reactive power, if before the installation of the reactive power bank capacitor is Q1 which is 130.50 kVAR then after installing the capacitor bank or improvement in the power factor, the value of the reactive power decreased by 93.58 kVAR to Q2, namely 36.92 kVAR.
