Voltage Optimisation: Save Energy and Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
At Tarven Limited, we offer a range of green energy-saving voltage optimisers that can significantly reduce your electricity bills and carbon footprint. By optimising voltage levels, we help you make the most of your energy consumption while minimising wastage.
We All Pay For Energy We Don't Use
Common European standards dictate that electrical appliances operate at 220/230v. However, producing excess voltage beyond the required level wastes energy. This is where voltage optimisation steps in.
Equipment Design and Lifespan
In the UK, manufacturers generally design equipment to work at 220V. As a result, these appliances consistently operate at higher voltages than necessary, leading to damage and reduced working lifetimes.
Importance of Voltage Optimisation
The voltage of national grid electricity fluctuates, and to ensure customers receive a consistent 230V supply, UK properties are supplied with voltages ranging from 216V to 253V, with an allowable variation of +10% and -6%. The National Grid typically provides a voltage of around 245V, guaranteeing that even the lowest supply is adequate.
How Do Voltage Optimisers Work?
Voltage optimisers are installed within the electrical system to control and stabilise incoming voltage from the main power supply. The device monitors the voltage levels and adjusts them to match the ideal operating range of electrical appliances, typically around 220V. Voltage optimisers prevent excessive voltage from reaching the appliances by providing a steady and consistent voltage supply.

Voltage Optimisation FAQs
Voltage optimisation regulates and reduces the incoming voltage supplied to a building or facility. It stabilises and optimises the voltage level to a more efficient and suitable range for the electrical equipment used, typically within 220-230 volts in the UK. This process helps to reduce energy consumption, extend the lifespan of electrical appliances, and lower carbon emissions.
UK voltage levels can often fluctuate above the ideal range, leading to high energy consumption and premature wear and tear on electrical equipment. By implementing voltage optimisation, businesses and households can gain energy savings, decrease their carbon footprint, and improve the overall efficiency and lifespan of their electrical systems.
Voltage optimisation helps reduce electricity bills by optimising the voltage supplied to a building. This way, energy consumption is significantly reduced. Electrical equipment operating at a lower voltage consumes less energy, resulting in savings on bills. However, it’s important to note that the savings will vary depending on the equipment used.
Large sites currently supplied with too much or too little voltage will see the most significant savings from voltage optimisation, but almost any property will see savings due to enhanced energy efficiency. Infrastructure and equipment will run more efficiently and need less maintenance at lower voltages.
Voltage optimisation is most suitable for sensitive or critical electrical equipment conditions, with extended working hours and high electricity consumption. As such, it suits factories, retail premises, busy restaurants, distribution & logistics centres, and healthcare sites.
Voltage regulation delivers improved power stability and savings. However, it is important to remember that its benefits vary significantly depending on the site and the grid’s current voltage. A site survey from an experienced supplier is the first stage when considering voltage optimisation.
While voltage optimisation offers numerous benefits, there are a few considerations. Some equipment, such as certain motors or incandescent light bulbs, may not operate optimally under reduced voltage conditions. It is essential to consult with a professional voltage optimisation provider to assess equipment compatibility and ensure any potential issues are addressed. Additionally, voltage optimisation solutions require proper installation and ongoing maintenance for optimal performance and safety.
