VO4HOME Ltd, developer and manufacturer of the innovative VO4HOME domestic voltage optimisation system, is pleased to announce that the installation of its system at a 5 star bunkhouse situated in the Brecon Beacons National Park, South Wales, has resulted in immediate savings in energy consumption and a substantial reduction in electricity costs.  

The installation of a VO4HOME system at Wern Watkin Bunkhouse – which has been graded Gold by the Green Tourism Business Scheme, the national sustainable tourism certification scheme for the UK – has led to savings of 17.6% in electricity consumption, complimenting other green products and initiatives, including a ground source heat pump and photovoltaic solar panels. The VO4HOME unit has also significantly improved power quality.  

Andrew Fryer, owner and manager of Wern Watkin Bunkhouse explained: “Due to the location of the bunkhouse we used to suffer from regular voltage surges, which resulted in recurring equipment failure, particularly water pumps. By installing the VO4HOME unit, power quality has improved and we have seen a marked reduction not only in electricity consumption, but also in the failure of electrical components. In fact, we haven’t lost a water pump since we installed the system.” 

Commenting on the installation Geoff Clifton, VO4HOME Business Development Manager, said: “Wern Watkin Bunkhouse already boasted an array of green products and initiatives, including a ground source heat pump and photovoltaic solar panels, when they approached VO4HOME. By installing our voltage optimisation system, we were able to contribute to existing green efforts by not only optimising energy savings, but also by addressing power quality issues.”
 
Mr Clifton added: “An increasing number of small businesses are turning to voltage optimisation to reduce their energy costs and improve energy efficiency. Installations such as the one at Wern Watkin Bunkhouse, as well as a recent VO4HOME installation at a hair and beauty salon in Cyprus where savings of 13% were achieved, prove that small businesses can benefit considerably from voltage optimisation technology.”                        

VO4HOME is a voltage optimisation system that is designed for use in homes and small businesses. The solution optimises incoming voltage to a constant 220V, providing immediate and significant energy savings on electricity costs and reduced CO2 emissions.
