Voltage Optimisation: What is it and How does it work?

    Print Email

The Technology Explained:

In the UK our voltage is typically around 245V. Household appliances must be designed to operate safely and efficiently within the European statutory range.

Many of the appliances we use regularly will use less energy at lower voltages.

Voltage Optimisation units use smart technology that enables Voltage Optimisation to be cost effectively introduced into the home. The unit reduces and stabilises the voltage at the property to a level within statutory limits but below the voltage that is usually supplied by your energy provider, in the UK the output is typically 220V.

This reduced voltage not only saves on your energy bills and carbon footprint, but can also increase the life of your appliances, many of which are designed to operate at an optimum voltage of 220 volts.



How Much can I Save?

Voltage Optimisation units have been shown in independent tests to save up to 12% off electricity bills.

In terms of carbon reduction, this equates to around 4 tonnes of CO2 over the 25+ year life of the product.

The really good thing is that once it's installed, you don't have to do anything else.

You don't have to notify your electricity provider. You don't have to change your lifestyle.

The unit will silently and unobtrusively make savings; you'll just notice a smaller electricity bill as a result.

As a rough guide, a typical domestic property fitted with gas central heating and running all the usual white goods in the kitchen, computers and gaming devices elsewhere and with an average electricity bill of £100.00 per month could save up to £120.00 per year.
