No...

Despite the demo that switches a bit of capacitance into an inductive load (or the other way around) and shows the saving.... this is not what happens in a real domestic situation.

PF correction has been used for many years in commercial installations, but has no application to what they are dressing it up as.

I agree with -X-... would be more efficient in say a school or warehouse where there is a large amount florescent lighting with high inductance on the load. but for domestic, i wouldn't think it would save on energy that much.:)
