What is this?

Voltage Optimisation is the controlled reduction of the voltage received by an energy consumer to reduce energy use and power demand.

At present, the average grid voltage across the UK is at 242V, however many electrical appliances are rated to be used at 230V, with the optimum level of efficiency being between 220V – 230V.

The Voltage optimiser units are normally installed between the electricity meter and the distribution board at the mains supply intake point of a building.

How can this help me?

Savings will vary from site to site but anywhere that uses electrical appliances/equipment, should consider voltage optimisation as a way of reducing both their electricity bills and carbon footprint.

In order to see if voltage optimisation is appropriate you should analyse the load dynamics of the site. This will help you understand the types of appliances involved and their power consumption in relation to the overall load.

Without Voltage Optimisation

Voltage from National Grid | Average power supply of 242V | High voltage shortens appliance lifespan


With Voltage Optimisation

Voltage from National Grid | Voltage optimiser reduces power to between 216- 220V | Appliance lifespan increased | Reduced Electricity Bills
