In the UK, on average, voltage is supplied to a building at 242V; however, the ideal operating voltage for most electrical equipment is 220V. This over supply of voltage leads to excessive amounts of electricity consumption, added wear and tear to on-site electrical equipment, high levels of carbon emissions and increased electricity costs.
Powerstar LITE voltage optimisation systems are designed to correct this over-voltage and bring the electricity supply in line with the requirements of each site. This solution is ideal for businesses that operate a low voltage (LV) supply, have high levels of incoming voltage and a stable voltage profile.
Through installing a Powerstar LITE voltage optimisation system, companies can achieve average savings of 10% on annual electricity consumption and benefit from typical return on investment of 2-3 years, supported by up to 15 years warranty a 100% savings guarantee. In addition, businesses will benefit from an improvement in power quality with reductions in harmonic distortions, improvements in power factor and longevity on electrical appliances.
Powerstar LITE is a UK manufactured technology and a unique voltage optimisation solution that holds a patent on its design which ensures that other voltage optimisation technologies, although similar in principle and application are unable to replicate the exact design specifications of the Powerstar system.
