- Voltis - the voltage manager that provides significant reductions in electricity costs..Save power..save money..save emissions..

UK voltage is supplied at around 240Volts, whilst electrical equipment works most efficiently at around 220Volts. This over-supply of energy not only costs you money, it substantially reduces the lifespan of your domestic appliances.

Voltage optimisation, or power optimisation, makes the single biggest impact to assist you in achieving your energy saving and carbon reduction targets

It is a simple, cost effective and practical energy management strategy which provides energy-efficiency by reducing and regulating the supply voltage on connected circuits to a set level where more devices operate more efficiently

 

The Voltis unit is a voltage optimisation device designed for use in homes and small businesses. It optimises the incoming voltage (which varies in a range 253V-216V) to a constant 220V giving householders immediate and significant energy savings for the whole home with a single Voltis unit fitted, simply and quickly, to the consumer unit (fuse box). Appliances work more efficiently and more cost-effectively

 

Based on tests, on appliances such as fridges and freezers "a Voltis unit can deliver a massive saving of around 17%". Voltis also delivers savings on lighting, washing machines, tumble driers, dishwashers, televisions and a whole range of other electrical appliances

 

Voltage management with a Voltis unit provides:

- significant reduction in electricity costs (10%+)

- simple to install (by a qualified electrician)

 

Normal retail price £327.50 incl.vat + (standard) installation = £397.50

Collective price:£295 .. incl vat+installation = £355

- EMMA 15 Cascade - the Energy & Microgeneration Manager

Are you a Home Generator of electricity from solar PV panels ? Are you aware that 50% of the electricity your pv installation generates is “lost” to the Grid ?

Electricity generated by your pv installation that is not consumed by your home and its appliances is Exported to the National Grid for a nominal payment

 

Now there is a way to divert your surplus output into appliances in your home before it goes to Export..the intelligent Energy & Microgeneration Manager, the EMMA 15 Cascade

EMMA's benefits to the customer are derived from two key points:

  • 40% of the average energy use in a domestic dwelling is hot water production
  • 40% to 50% of electricity produced by a micro-generator is 'lost' to the grid due to a mis-match in supply and demand profiles - i.e. at certain times your generator is producing more energy than you are using

 

EMMA redirects this otherwise-exported electricity to immediate uses within the building instead of allowing it to be exported. For instance, it sends the surplus electricity to heat your water NOW - while the surplus is available - rather than allowing the electricity to be exported, only for you to have to buy-in electricity from the grid later in the day to heat your hot water then

EMMA increases the value of over half the output of your generator by using it in the household or farm rather than allowing it to be exported to the Grid
