Local Councils opt for Powerstar

Three local councils have recently deployed the EMSc (UK) Ltd Powerstar voltage optimisation system in a commitment to lower the amount of energy they consume and to reduce the size of their carbon footprint.

Thanks to Powerstar, Tower Hamlets Council, Derby City Council and Cotswold District Council will, altogether, save more than £24,000 in electricity bills, 240,651kWh on electricity consumption and reduce their carbon emissions annually by 153 tonnes.

Tower Hamlets Council, in London’s East End, has installed a Powerstar system at Albert Jacob House, after it was identified that a minimum of 12% in electricity consumption could be saved by using Powerstar. Following the installation, an annual saving in electricity consumption of 54,065kWh will be achieved, equating to savings of £6,411 on annual electricity charges and 30 tonnes of carbon emissions per annum.

Derby City Council is aiming to reduce its carbon emissions by 25% by 2013/14 as part of a ‘Climate Change Strategy’. As a result, Derby Council decided to install Powerstar systems in the Eagle Centre market, the Environmental Services Parks Management depot and the Market Hall.
The council is set to save at least £10,000 per annum in electricity costs, 128,972 kWh in electricity consumption and 69.2 tonnes of carbon emissions, with the system installed at the Eagle Centre market alone expected to reduce electricity consumption by 14.6%.

Cotswold District Council has a carbon management plan that aims to cut CO2 emissions by 25% by 2015. Powerstar was commissioned to install a unit at Cotswold Leisure Centre, enabling savings in energy consumption of 57,614KwH and an overall energy saving of 8%. The Centre has also decreased its carbon footprint by reducing CO2 emissions by 54 tonnes. In monetary terms, Powerstar is projected to make an annual saving of £7,800 on the Leisure Centre’s electricity costs.

Councillor Mark Tufnell, cabinet member for environment and communities, Cotswold District Council commented, “The introduction of the Powerstar unit at the Leisure Centre building is a significant contributor to Cotswold District Council’s energy saving programme. I am particularly pleased that we have reduced costs while contributing to our goal of achieving a 25% reduction in harmful carbon emissions by 2015.”
Powerstar is the only voltage optimisation system designed and manufactured in the UK and is the highest rated with an efficiency of 99.91%.
