Well, it's been over 40 years since I've thought about power factor so take this with a grain of salt.

Purely resistive loads (good power factor) are the easiest type of power for the power companies to deliver. Non- resistive (reactive) (poor power factor) loads are more problematic for them. Therefore, they hit the users of poor power factor equipment with surcharges.
