VO Helps Tackles Fuel Poverty for Housing Associations in Barnsley & Colchester

Barnsley Town Council and Colchester County Council are just 2 Housing Associations who have invested in VO to support their efforts in tackling fuel poverty.

By installing our residential VO units in affordable new houses they are helping the associations tenants save between 8% and 14% on their electricity bills. The VO units also increase the lifespan of the electrical equipment by up to 55% dramatically reducing the repair and replacement costs. Installing our VO units reduces the carbon footprint at each installation and makes enormous sense to every tenant who benefits from having more disposable income.

Our Powerdown220 Eco Max Home Voltage Optimisers are achieving on average 12% energy saving in homes across the UK. In line with CE regulations, the vast majority of the UK’s electrical equipment is designed to operate at 220v – 230v.


For historic reasons our electricity is supplied to homes at an average of 242v but can be as high as 253v. It is a little known fact that the more voltage you apply to an appliance the more energy it consumes ……. costing you more and shortening the life of the device. Installing one of our Eco Max Home Voltage Optimisers allows our home owners and tenants to make substantial energy saving and prolong the life of all household electrical appliances.

Since having my Eco Max Home Voltage Optimiser fitted, all my electrical appliances operate great, my light bulbs last longer, and most importantly my electricity bill has gone down by over £12 per month, which I’m sure is also helping the planet
