In this area of our energy services package we look to reduce an organisation’s total energy consumption. We do this through the introduction of better housekeeping and pieces of equipment which are designed to reduce volumes, such as voltage optimisation. We also look at installing alternative micro-generation projects, such as on site wind turbines and photovoltaic solutions. Alternative energy supplies, where there might be a small independent generator providing power to the area within the locality of the client’s site, are also reviewed.
What is voltage optimisation?
Energy and Carbon Management has joined forced with various strategic partners to help optimise your voltage.
Voltage Optimiser provides savings on carbon emissions and energy costs by means of equalising your supply voltage to an optimum level. It deals with the discrepancy between the actual supply voltage you receive (207V - 253V) and the optimum voltage your electrical equipment needs.
For the first time ever, Voltage Optimisation gives businesses, manufacturers, councils and government the opportunity to micro-manage and improve their power supply.
Why do it?
Voltage Optimiser could save you on average 13% on your electricity cost. Dependant on technical parameters on site this could increase to 20%!
- Voltage Optimiser could reduce your carbon emissions by the same amount
- Helps you to comply with Government CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme
- Gives you protection from transients (spikes) which can damage your equipment
- Reduces reactive power and lower the cost in process
- Extends lifespan of existing equipment
- Reduces maintenance costs
How much does it cost?
Instead of looking at Voltage Optimiser as a cost, we would rather look at it as an investment. This is a technology where the percentage Return on Investment (ROI) is typically 25%-100%.
With these levels of return and fast payback everyone can afford to install the technology.
Various public and private funding initiatives are available to appropriate businesses for the utilisation of energy efficiency and sustainability technologies.
We shall identify such funding options, qualify your suitability for such schemes and complete applications on your behalf.
All Voltage Optimisers are sized to meet individual needs. All installations are carried out by accredited contractors and will be arranged to best suit your needs.
