Trials start on novel mains voltage optimisation system
28 July 2011
Yorkshire based company VO4HOME has entered into a new venture with not-for-profit business support consultancy CO2Sense to offer businesses in Yorkshire and Humber the chance to trial environmental products and services that can substantially reduce environmental impact and energy bills. VO4HOME’s voltage optimisation system - one of the products selected for the trials - is able to reduce energy use and CO2 emissions by selectively reducing mains voltage supply to appliances.
CO2Sense has invested in a number of VO4HOME units and both organisations are jointly working on identifying sites that will derive maximum benefit from an installation. The projects will also be monitored and used as case studies to demonstrate what CO2 and financial savings can be achieved by utilising the technology.
“This is an exciting project that will provide tangible cost benefits for those involved in the project, whilst simultaneously lowering their carbon footprint. It’s very much a win-win situation for the customer”, said Geoff Clifton (pictured), business development manager for VO4HOME.
“VO4HOME is a cost effective solution that delivers tangible savings on energy consumption. Not only is payback usually within 4-5 years, which means that it is a commercially sound investment but it also comes with a 5 year product guarantee.”
A social housing project in Durham has already been identified as a test site, with both companies also looking at other potential test site application opportunities within SME facilities and university accommodation.
Any business interested in participating in this free trial should contact either Geoff Clifton of VO4HOME at 07769 212051 or Jeanine Willoughby of CO2Sense at 0113 237 8452.
