Voltage Optimisation

The easy way to save power, save money & help save the planet

What is Voltage Optimisation?

Voltage Optimisation is an energy saving technology that reduces the supply voltage applied to a single piece of equipment or machinery, a lighting system, a specific area within a building or an entire building. It is possible to make a substantial energy saving with voltage optimisation.
Electricity in the UK is supplied at an average of 242 volts. Crucially, however, much of our electrical equipment operates most efficiently at around 220 Volts. When voltage exceeds this level, energy is wasted in both heat and vibration, which costs money and significantly reduces the life span of electrical appliances. In this sense, a voltage optimisation unit is great for saving electricity.

Benefits of Voltage Optimisation

  • Immediately reduces customers electricity consumption by up to 19%
  • Saves your customers money 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
  • Reduces your customers carbon footprint
  • Electrical appliances last longer
  • Works with Solar PV, Wind Power & Heat Pumps
  • Quick and simple installation – no change to supplier needed

  • voltage optimisation unit savings

Voltage Optimisation Commercial suitability

A Voltage Optimisation unit is suitable for commercial businesses with three phase electricity supply such as:
  • Hotels, Restaurants and Pubs: savings can be made on lighting, kitchen appliances, front of house equipment and accommodation areas
  • Office & Retail: Savings can be made on equipment such as lighting, heating, ventilation, refrigeration and air-conditioning
  • Healthcare & Beauty: Dentists, GP's, vets, gyms, spas and hairdressers etc can make savings on equipment such as tools, lighting, pumps, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning.
  • Industrial, Manufacturing & Engineering: Savings can be made on lighting, machinery, motors, pumps, fans, air compressors and tools etc...

Saving Potential

Ultimately the level of energy saving achieved will be dictated by a combination of incoming supply voltage levels and the types of electrical equipment used. The higher the supply voltage is, the greater the potential to make energy savings from ECO-MAX Voltage Optimisers.
  • Commercial: Small businesses, shops to hotels and offices to workshops can gain from savings. Full payback is often less than 3 years.
  • Domestic: Guaranteed 10% saving on electricity consumption but savings as high as 19% are possible.
