Voltage optimisation units

Synopsis 

Voltage optimisation can achieve energy savings of between five and 20 percent in situations where mains voltage is higher than is needed by farm equipment. In addition to enabling energy savings, voltage optimisation units protect electrical devices from variation (surges or drops) in mains voltage. Purchasing considerations include the type of unit and the presence of electronic devices in the circuit. The installed cost of a VO unit ranges typically between $150 to $300 per kVA.
