Voltage Optimiser/Optimizer Installation - Proven Technology (Installer in Newcastle, Gateshead, Durham, Northumberland, North East)

Voltage Optimisation is on of the fastest growing energy saving technologies. Voltage Optimisation systems reduce the voltage fed from the grid to equipment in your home to around 220 Volts.

Voltager Optimiser - Brief Overview

The European Union introduced the Low Voltage directive (LVD) to regulate the normal operating voltage of electrical equipment to be supplied in Europe. As a consequence equipment which bear the CE mark is designed to operate most efficiently at 220V. This is due to the average European voltage being between 220-230V. As of 2012 the UK Electrical Quality and Supply regulations were modified and as a result the statutory supply specification in the UK changed to 400V/230V +/-10%, this was brought about to harmonise the UK voltage in line with the European voltage. Although this occurred the current average UK voltage still remains at 242V, this is much higher than the 220V that's necessary.

The National Grid supplies electricity at around 242V in order to comply with the Electricity Supply Regulations. The regulations stipulate that electricity supplied should be 230V +/- 10% which is 207-253V. Due to this regulation it is possible to have an incoming voltage near to 250V supplying equipment that are designed to run most effiiciently at 220V. In this very likely eventuality the excess voltage creates surplus power which is just dissipated as heat and vibration, which is significantly proven to reduce the lifespan of machinery and appliances. 

Voltage Optimiser - The Solution

Inherent Energy can supply and install a Voltage Optimisation unit at your home or business. This is one of the most cost effective and simplest ways to reduce your annual electricity bills. The VO unit is effective on voltages ranging from 230-260V.
