Powerstar has completed the installation of 25 voltage-optimisation units in Co-op Food convenience stores and supermarkets in Lincolnshire. The projects follow a trial in 2015 by Lincolnshire Co-operative (LCL) of voltage-optimisation units in four stores, which reduced electricity consumption by an average of 4.8%.

Following that success, LCL commissioned Powerstar to survey 56 sites. 25 facilities were identified as having the potential for the best payback and return on investment. They included 21 food stores, a bakery, a chilled butcher and ambient food warehouse, an ambient food-only warehouse and the head-office building.

The projects in Lincolnshire build on Powerstar’s long-standing relationship with Co-op Food, which has resulted in over 400 installations across the UK.

Overall, the energy savings produced by these voltage-optimisation systems will provide a payback to LCL of less than four years.

Stuart Clegg, commercial director for Powerstar (pictured), said, ‘We have built a strong working relationship over a number of years with Co-op Food and are delighted to provide the company with a technology that offers significant savings on electricity costs. The 25 voltage optimisation units installed we have recently installed in Lincolnshire are the latest in a long line of Powerstar solutions operating successfully across the retail and grocery store sector.’
