News: Powerstar installed at engineering school


Rotherham-based EMSc UK Ltd, the market leading manufacturer of the world's most efficient voltage optimisation system, Powerstar, has successfully installed their system at St Hild's Church of England School, a specialist engineering college in Hartlepool.

Powerstar was installed after Year 8 students at St Hild's identified the need to effectively reduce the energy output of the school in order to reduce its overall environmental impact and carbon footprint.

In addition to lowering energy consumption by 9.2%, the installation will reduce annual CO2 emissions by 27.1 tonnes, which will decrease the school's CRC tax payments by £325 per year. The installation will see the school save £4,795 per annum in electricity costs.

Dr Alex Mardapittas, managing director at EMSc (UK) Ltd, said: "As a school dedicated to engineering, St Hild's was looking for a true engineering solution that would deliver exceptional results. With unrivalled results in energy savings and 100% reliability in over 4500 installations, Powerstar fitted the bill."

Robert Smith, estates manager at St Hild's, added: "As a Church of England school with a strong commitment to the environment and an engineering specialism, St Hild’s prides itself on creating opportunities to bring these areas together. Powerstar has allowed us to do that by providing the most up to date engineering technology specifically designed to reduce carbon emissions to help make our school more energy efficient. The savings are immediately evident and will allow us to invest more of our money into the learning and progress of our students."

Based at Templeborough, the Powerstar system is the only voltage optimisation system wholly designed and manufactured in the UK and works by reducing the the voltage supplied by the National Grid.

Powerstar generally achieves average savings of 12-15%, improves the life expectancy of electrical equipment, and enhances power quality by reducing harmonics.
