To be in with a chance of winning a Voltage Optimisation device for SMEs from npower Business, then look out for a competition in this month’s Works Management magazine.

npower Business has become the first energy company in the UK to offer pioneering money saving voltage optimisation technology to small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs).

Partnering with UK-based EMSc (UK) Ltd, npower Business began offering the Powerstar power saving devices to customers in June.

Designed and manufactured in Sheffield, the Powerstar range of voltage optimisation solutions have been proven by EMSc (UK) Ltd to help users save between 12 and 15% off their energy bills.

Voltage optimisation technology reduces the voltage coming in to optimum levels, helps to reduce electricity bills, extends the life of electrical equipment, and helps to reduce carbon emissions.

One of the first customers of the partnership has been Paul Wilson, the Managing Director of EDM Zone, an engineering firm based at Newcastle’s Hawick Crescent Industrial Estate.

Specialising in creating objects shaped by electrical sparks, EDM Zone uses a complex process known as electric discharge machining, which as the description suggests, is energy intensive. This process sees up to 22 machines being used up to six days every week. Paul, who founded the company in 1972 and has more than 30 years of engineering experience under his belt, is constantly looking at ways to save money for his business.

Although key to helping Paul better understand how to become more energy efficient was an energy audit, the most significant energy saving initiative to date has been the subsequent recommendation and installation of EMSc’s Powerstar technology.

Other initiatives include the replacement of existing lights with LEDs, implementing new processes to monitor water conservation, and the installation of compressed air leak detection. These changes ensure that EDM Zone guarantees that the energy being used to run the machinery will use approximately six to eight per cent less voltage supply.

Philip Scholes, Head of Sales & Marketing at npower Business, said: “From our own discussions with small to medium sized business owners and operators, we know that they are looking to get a better handle on their outgoings, reducing them where and wherever possible.

“Whilst many shrug off energy as a necessary cost, there are almost always ways in which businesses can make greater savings; and voltage optimisation is one of the many tools we can supply our customers with to help them to save money.”

Dr. Alex Mardapittas Managing Director of Powerstar added: “We are delighted with our pioneering partnership with npower Business to deliver our multi-award winning Powerstar systems to businesses across the UK. All our solutions continue to be manufactured in the UK, as they have been since being established 14 years ago and they all come with a five-year guarantee.”
