Voltage optimisation can help photovoltaic installers replace lost revenue from feed in tariff reductions

The government has announced drastic changes to the feed in tariffs scheme, reducing the amount of money people will receive for solar panel generated energy into the national grid. This is forcing photovoltaic companies to look at other opportunities for replacing lost revenues as many household reconsider the benefits.

Thankfully there are a variety of options to consider – one of the most effective ways to optimise power efficiency and reduce costly wastage is to install a voltage optimisation system, a remarkable piece of technology that reduces the voltage coming into the home from 245v to 220v.

This simple reduction delivers immediate and significant energy savings, as well as savings of between 330lbs to 500lbs of CO2 emissions and a commensurate saving of between £120 and £200 per year in electricity costs.

Voltage optimisation also offer a number of other benefits: it protects electrical appliances, extending their operating life; it reduces maintenance requirements and increases equipment efficiency; it offers protection from electrical surges; it cuts carbon emissions from electricity generation; and it reduces the frequency with which equipment needs to be replaced.

In addition, it can quickly and easily be fitted by electrical installers as it simply requires 2 wires in and 2 wires out to make it fully operational, a process that adds less than an hour to a job.

Acting pro-actively by installing a voltage optimisation system will mean that, despite the falling tariffs, households are still able to achieve tangible financial benefits while reducing their impact on the environment.
