CO2 reduction through voltage optimisation

VO4HOME has entered into a new venture to reduce CO2 with not-for-profit business support consultancy CO2Sense.
CO<sub>2</sub> reduction through voltage optimisation
CO2Sense, an environmental consultancy that helps businesses to cut carbon emissions and reduce costs, is offering businesses in Yorkshire and Humber the chance to trial environmental products and services to reduce environmental impacts and costs.

Yorkshire based VO4HOME's voltage optimisation system is one of the products selected for the trials. The company says this technology can reduce energy use, CO2 and as a result lower the end user's electricity bill.

CO2Sense has invested in a number of VO4HOME units and both organisations are jointly working on identifying sites that will derive maximum benefit from an installation. The projects will also be monitored and used as case studies to demonstrate what CO2 and financial savings can be achieved by utilising the technology.

Geoff Clifton, business development manager for VO4HOME said: 'This is an exciting project that will provide tangible cost benefits for those involved in the project, whilst simultaneously lowering their carbon footprint. It's very much a win-win situation for the customer. VO4HOME is a cost effective solution that delivers tangible savings on energy consumption. Not only is payback usually within 4-5 years, which means that it is a commercially sound investment but it also comes with a 5 year product guarantee.'

A social housing project in Durham has already been identified as a test site, with both companies also looking at other potential test site application opportunities within both small and medium sized enterprise's (SMEs) and university accommodation.

Any business interested in participating in this free trial should contact either Geoff Clifton of VO4HOME at 07769 212051 or Jeanine Willoughby of CO2Sense at 0113 237 8452.
