Voltage Optimisation technology, where appropriate, can help achieve energy savings of up to 19% by optimising a building's incoming electricity supply voltage.
In the UK the average incoming electricity supply is 242 volts, sometimes as high as 253 volts, whilst most modern electrical equipment is designed and optimised to operate at 220 volts.
A Voltage Optimisation system reduces the voltage down to 220 volts (some systems can maintain this output regardless of incoming voltage), thus bringing the following benefits:
The effectiveness of VO varies from building to building and depends upon various factors such as your incoming voltage supply, the type of equipment and how it is used. A full analysis of your building is carried out to establish an accurate energy savings projection.
