Save around 10% on your electricity bill with Voltage Optimisation

Erica Charles 11 Dec 2017

In line with CE and EU regulations, most of the UK’s electrical equipment is optimised to work at 220-230v. For historic reasons our electricity is supplied at an average of 242v but could be as high as 253v.

It is a little known fact that the more voltage you apply to an appliance the more energy it consumes – costing you more and shortening the life of the device.

By reducing your voltage supply to 230V or slightly below, it is possible to make a substantial energy saving (~ 12% reduction in the average home) and prolong the life of your electronic appliances.
