Hello CoE

You need to provide us with more information on the application etc before we can offer any real comment, however there is no point in adding power factor correction unless you are paying for a poor power factor, or you are paying a maximum demand penalty.

Power factor correction will not reduce the reading on your KWHr meter. It reduces the current, so it will reduce the line losses, but the load will still draw the same power.

Best regards,

Hello CoE

If you are paying for KWHrs only, no additional tarriffs, then there is no easy way to reduce your power bill except by reducing the work done, heating used, or lighting used.
Have a look at the energy usage and determine if you can cut down on that.

Best regards,
