If you're trying to reduce your business expenses, one of the best places to start is by cutting your energy costs. Turning lights off and making sure computers are fully shut down overnight will help, but only to an extent. That's where commercial voltage optimisation can help you save up to 20% on your annual energy bills, Reduce your company's carbon footprint and prolong the life of your electrical equipment.
What is Commercial Voltage Optimisation?
As a business, it's likely that you'll need to power a significant amount of electrical equipment and whether that's on one site, or across multiple locations, it can come at quite a cost. Most modern electrical equipment in the EU are designed to operate at its best on or around 220V, while the average incoming electricity supply in this country is 242V a notable difference. This oversupply of electricity could be pushing your annual energy bills up without you noticing. One of the most popular solutions in this scenario is commercial voltage optimisations. Atlantic Renewables can visit your business, perform a full audit and install the necessary equipment to optimise your incoming voltage to the level you need. By doing this Atlantic Renewables could help you significantly reduce the cost of your annual energy bill and help to reduce your carbon footprint.
How Much Can My Business Save?
On average, your business could save up to 20% on your energy bills. Of course this all depends on the electrical equipment you are powering and other things. Commercial voltage optimisation is aimed primarily at a business spending in excess of £1,500 per month on electricity. There are also other forms of voltage optimisation units for businesses whose primary consumer of energy is lighting. One thing to remember is you won't just be saving money, you'll also be protecting your own electrical equipment and helping to save the environment.
How Will Commercial Voltage Optimisation Help To Protect My Equipment?
As mentioned previously, most modern electrical equipment in the UK are designed to deliver optimum performance on an incoming supply of 220V. The average incoming electricity supply is 242V, an over-supply off 22V, 22V might not seem like much, but the overall effect this can have on your equipment's lifespan could cost you more money in the long run. You are essentially over feeding your equipment with electricity, giving it more than it actually needs and increasing the risk of damage and or failure.
How Does It Work
The Voltage Optimiser is easy to install and can typically take 2-3 hours. It's normally located between the main fuse board and the distribution board but sometimes has to be tailored to suit specific circuits. Typically the incoming voltage is between 216V and 253V as required under the current European Legislation. All appliances in the UK are designed to work on voltages between 207V and 253V. Critically the optimum and most efficient supply voltage for these appliances is 220V. Simply by regulating the incoming supply to the lower voltage saves your organisation money on your energy bill. The unit has a dedicated electronic control unit that will constantly monitor all the parameters such as incoming and outgoing supply voltage, load current, temperature and even its own performance, ensuring the unit always delivers the optimum performance to the organisation.
