Why does excessive voltage electricity have to cost your business more money?
In today's business world, manufacturing plants, office buildings, and other commercial facilities use a complex set of electrical equipment. These pieces of equipment are crucial to the efficient operation of the business, while at the same time, they are sensitive to the conditions in which they operate. Current voltages that are not optimally adjusted inflate electricity bills and reduce operational efficiency associated with reduced equipment life.
What is voltage?
Voltage is the potential difference between two points in an electrical circuit. In standard domestic networks in Europe, the voltage is 230V.
How does high voltage affect energy consumption?
When the mains voltage exceeds the optimum level, equipment uses more energy than necessary. This can lead to shortened equipment life, overheating and even breakdowns that can interrupt your business.
For the entrepreneur, excessive voltage means additional costs. Not only can it mean higher electricity bills, but also the cost of having to replace faulty equipment. These are additional expenses that can affect your profitability.
Standards in the European Union.
According to EU regulations, energy suppliers are obliged to supply voltage in the range of 230V +/- 10%. Your business must therefore be prepared to operate correctly in the 207V to 253V range. Investing in voltage monitoring and optimization systems is key to ensuring business continuity and controlling costs.
