Voltage Optimisation

Reduce Power Consumption – Prolong the life of appliances

Very often the electricity supply to a site is at a higher voltage level than needed. This results in excessive energy consumption, high electricity bills and a reduced lifespan for the appliances using the energy.

A reduction in the voltage level can help save energy, reduce costs and prolong the lifespan of appliances and reduce maintenance costs

“Voltage optimisation doesn’t just reduce the voltage, it offers true energy saving benefits”

In fact Intel Corporation carried out a power optimisation study in 1997. The study revealed that an 8.9% reduction in voltage on its microprocessors achieved a reduction of 20% in the power consumption.

The IEE (Institution of Electrical Engineers) has also carried out a study into over voltage and found that a 230V linear appliance used on a 240V supply will take 4.3% more current and will consume almost 9% more energyand only achieve 55% of its rated life.


Voltage optimisation systems systematically optimise, regulate and clean the incoming power supply to bring the voltage supplied into a building in line with what is required.

Unlike step-down transformers and voltage stabilisers, Voltage Optimisation doesn’t just reduce the voltage, it offers true energy saving benefits as the unused energy is passed back to the grid.
