Universities Save More With VPO
19 July 2012, News release from powerPerfector
Fifty of the country's universities have now installed powerPerfector's Voltage Power Optimisation.
A total of 178 Higher Education buildings are using the technology which improves the quality of power and reduces the voltage within the building from the supply average of 242V to the optimum voltage for electrical equipment, which is 220V.
Among the key installations to date is Keble College, one of the largest constituent colleges of the University of Oxford, with 410 undergraduate and 235 graduate students.
A 420kVA powerPerfector unit was installed at Keble College in December 2010. The college saw an 8.5 per cent reduction in electricity costs, equating to carbon dioxide emissions savings of at least 65.7 tonnes and annual financial savings of at least £7,900.
Roger Boden, College Bursar, said: "With payback of less than four years, the decision to invest in a powerPerfector unit was an easy one to make on financial grounds, and the prospect of higher electricity costs and carbon taxes in the future only strengthened the case.
"The college is equally committed to a responsible approach to carbon emissions. The combination of financial and environmental benefits looked on paper, to be overwhelming. The reality has turned out to be as good as predicted."
powerPerfector Head of Sales, Wayne Muncaster said: "Higher Education has really embraced the technology. In total we are saving universities over £1.61million every year in energy costs, this equates to nearly 8,000 tonnes of CO2.
"powerPerfector is the UK's leading provider of Voltage Optimisation technology. The embedded power conditioning benefits make powerPerfector's VPO® unique, increasing the cost and CO2 savings you make." <
