Voltage Optimisation is an energy saving device that when installed inline with the main incoming electrical supply it will optimise, regulate and clean up the power supplied into your business premises and reduce it back in line with the design voltage.
From 1993 onwards, all electrical equipment designed for the European market carry’s a CE mark. This shows that the piece of equipment will work across the UK’s voltage range of between 207v – 253v. The UK’s average electricity supply is up at 242v; in some case’s, the supply can be as high as 253v. All equipment with the CE mark works most efficiently at 220v.
The above picture on the left demonstrates how the National Grid supplies an average of 242 volts, the optimised electricity is then restricted to 220v and the surplus 22 volts is returned to the grid. This approximately a 10% drop in energy usage which can relate up to a 19% drop in your energy bills. Obviously energy isn’t bought in volts so Ohm’s law is used to calculate the overall reduction in energy spend.
Customers who have Voltage Optimisation installed are also benefiting from prolonged lifespan and significantly reduced maintenance costs. These are given through effective Power Optimisation, voltage management and cleaning of the incoming electricity supply
A Voltage Optimisation solutions should is not an off the shelf piece of technology. Every energy audit that is undertaken ensures that the unit installed suits the exact needs of the location and business type, in order to maximise any benefits and savings.
