This paper explores the approach of having a common Power Factor Correction circuit for domestic and commercial loads. This leads to lower harmonic distortion without the need to install (expensive) active rectifiers in each end-user device. The need for power-factor correction as well as a number of design options is discussed in this paper. The design and cost estimation of a common Power Factor Correction scheme and some reliability issues are discussed
