Voltage Reduction Testing

Participate in IESO’s Voltage Reduction Testing and discover the opportunity of energy conservation. Every 18 months for over the past 20 years, the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) performs voltage reduction tests of three and five percent within the province of Ontario. This is done in order to measure the load reduction that would occur if emergency steps needed to be taken of … Read More

Voltage Reduction and Energy Conservation

Reduce your building’s voltage consumption with Legend Power Systems and conserve energy. Conservation Voltage Reduction (CVR) has been implemented by power facilities for many years in an effort to save energy. In the past, CVR was only used in instances when demand exceeded supply, reducing voltage to avoid widespread power outages. And yet, voltage reduction is an effective means of conserving energy, which … Read More

An Energy Problem: Forced Consumption

The problem of force consumption in terms of energy conservation is that of line loss resistance. Facilities near the beginning of the grid receive voltage at a higher level than needed and waste energy. Over $1 billion is wasted per year by commercial buildings due to forced grid consumption. Voltage optimization reduces electrical energy consumption by up to 10%, which … Read More
