Powerstar, the global voltage optimisation system, is now available in Ireland following a distributor agreement with Irish energy solutions company Powerstar Voltage.
Powerstar is developing a market presence in a number of new international territories – the company also recently signed agreements with distributors on the East Coast of America.
Headed by Gerry Corrigan, Powerstar Voltage is identifying strategic energy efficiency opportunities across Ireland, by capitalising on the Irish Government’s policy to reduce energy consumption by 20%, with the implementation of energy efficiency measures, by 2020. Recognising that Government must lead by example, it is, at the same time, challenging public sector procurement departments to achieve a 33% reduction in energy usage in the same time frame.
“With these targets at the forefront of many strategic energy plans, the demand from companies and public sector organisation alike for the Powerstar range of products has never been greater. The reaction from customers, when they are presented with the potential savings they can achieve, is extremely positive”, said Gerry Corrigan.
Voltage in Ireland is on average supplied at 242V by the National Grid, however only 230V is required by modern equipment and appliances. Powerstar’s products reduce the voltage coming into a building or site to the optimum level. Average electricity consumption savings of 12% to 15% can be achieved by installing Powerstar solutions. At the same time, Powerstar products reduce harmonics and maintenance requirements, extending the life span of appliances.
Dr. Alex Mardapittas, managing director of Powerstar commented, “Currently 15% of our business is from international markets, we plan to grow this by developing our presence in new markets across the world including Ireland. Gerry holds the same values of customer care, product excellence and entrepreneurial drive that have been at the centre of Powerstar’s success in the UK, and we are looking forward to developing what promises to be an exciting market for our products in Ireland together.”
Powerstar voltage optimisation systems have been designed and manufactured in the UK for over 13 years and are the only systems in the world to be granted a patent on their design. Powerstar boasts 100% reliability with no recorded failures across thousands of installations globally, offering a secure, proven and reliable solution for businesses in Ireland.
