News: VO4 saves at the Co-op


Rotherham-based VO4, one of the UK's leading voltage optimisation manufacturers has announced that the company's system is being rolled out across a number of Co-Operative stores in the UK.

Specialising in voltage optimisation units offering an energy saving solution to homes and small businesses, the separate company remained at Templeborough when associate firm, EMS UK Ltd expanded to larger premises. The systems reduce the incoming voltage supplied to a building and help reduce energy consumption.

3 phase systems were initially installed in six Co-Operative stores in Portsmouth and Southampton. Following successful trials that resulted in delivering significant energy savings, a further 22 have now been installed in Plymouth.

The Co-Operative, renowned for its ethical approach to business, had already achieved significant energy savings in a number of larger stores where voltage optimisation had been installed and was keen to make even greater savings by installing the new VO4 solution in smaller convenience stores.

Geoff Clifton business development manager at VO4, said: "We developed the 3 phase system as a means of helping businesses with energy costs less than £50,000 to save money on their electricity bills and reduce CO2 emissions. As a company recognised for its ethical values, we are delighted to be working with the Co-Operative, to supply them with our 3 phase solution."

Rob Scoulding, regional energy and environmental manager at the Co-Operative, added: "We are committed to embracing energy efficiency as part of our efforts to reduce our impact on the environment. We have seen very useful reductions in our electricity use at the large supermarkets in our group through the adoption of voltage optimisation and when we became aware of the small VO4 offering it became clear that, with the huge numbers of smaller stores in our portfolio a device such as this could make a great contribution towards our targets."

The innovative system will help businesses achieve energy savings of up to 10%. VO4 will also go some way to helping companies reduce their carbon emissions and extend the lifespan of electrical equipment as it improves power quality by balancing phase voltages and attenuating transients from the supply.
