Edge Electrons installs its hardware in a factory for demand charge reduction and improved efficiency

September 6, 2018 | Case Study

Across several regions of Australia, the significant presence of intermittent renewables leads to fluctuating voltage levels and frequent overvoltage events; instead of the normal 230 V, voltages can spike to as high as 240 V to 250 V. To provide a solution, Edge Electrons has developed power regulation hardware for the residential sector to reduce electricity consumption through conservation voltage reduction. It has also developed power regulation hardware called PowerSave that is installed behind the meter for the commercial and industrial sector, which uses a bank of capacitors to inject reactive power when motors or heavy equipment start up in order to reduce inrush currents and maintain the power factor at levels close to 1.0, which reduces demand charges.
