Energy saving specialist EMSc (UK) has helped leading motor trader Perry’s to slash electricity costs at one of its dealerships.
Chapeltown-based EMSc installed one of its Powerstar voltage optimisation units at Perry’s Aylesbury dealership as part of a wider energy management initiative that included installing LED lighting, lighting sensors, timers and controls.
The battery of energy reduction measures has cut the dealership’s requirements by 17.6 per cent, with the Powerstar unit contributing almost half of the savings.
EMSc’s Peter Newell said: “We are delighted to have a Powerstar unit installed at the Perry’s dealership in Aylesbury as part of the company’s energy management programme.
“The annual savings of eight per cent on energy are representative of what can be achieved within the industry.”
EMSc’s success comes days after it revealed it had signed an agreement with a leading Hamburg-based technology products distributor that would help it build exports to Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
n EMSC’s technology capitalises on the fact that supply voltages are often higher than the 220 volts that modern electrical equipment is designed to use to ensure customers furthest from the electricity sub station get enough power.
Users closest to the sub-station could be getting as much as 250 volts, Typically, that means their equipment runs hotter, which shortens its life in addition to wasting electricity.
Powerstar voltage optimisers work by matching the supply voltage to the voltage needed to run electrical appliances, reducing waste and increasing the lifespan of equipment.
