Commercial Voltage Optimisation – Save up to 35% on Utility Bills
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 shutdown overnight will help; but only to an extent. That’s where commercial voltage optimisation can help:
Save up to 35% on your annual energy bills.
Reduce your company’s carbon footprint.
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 is designed to operate ‘at its best’ on around 220V, while the average incoming electricity supply in this country is 242V – a notable difference. This over-supply 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 optimisation.
Apollo Enviro can visit your site, perform a full audit (determining how much you could save with voltage optimisation) and install the necessary energy-efficiency equipment to optimise your incoming voltage to the level you need. It’s more than just optimising your voltage, though. By doing this, Apollo Enviro 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 35% on your energy bills. Of course, this depends on the electrical equipment you are powering, amongst other things (commercial voltage optimisation (ComEC) is aimed primarily at business spending in excess of £1,500 per month on electricity).
We also offer voltage optimisation units for businesses whose primary consumer of energy is lighting. Read more about our lighting energy controller here. Remember, you won’t just be saving money though; you’ll be protecting your own electrical equipment and helping to save the environment, too.
How will commercial voltage optimisation help to protect my equipment?
As mentioned, most modern electrical equipment in the UK is designed to deliver optimum performance on an incoming supply of 220V; but the average incoming electricity supply is 242V – an over-supply off 22V. 22V might not sound much, but the overall effect this could have on your equipment’s lifespan (let alone your expenses) could cost you more money in the long run. You are essentially ‘over-feeding’ your equipment with electricity; giving it more than it needs and increasing the risk of damage and/or failure.
Apollo Enviro’s Commercial Energy Efficiency Controller (ComEC) could reduce your incoming supply to the required voltage – thereby protecting your equipment at the same time as reducing your costs and carbon footprint.
