High voltage is a nasty problem. It means you are being force-fed too much power from the grid, resulting in high power bills, damaged appliances and dangerous power spikes. If you have solar, high voltage will stop your system from working.
Protect your home from high voltage by using a Voltage Reader to diagnose your High Voltage problem. If your voltage is above 240 volts, consider installing a compact, low-cost Voltage Protection device.
- Simply plug it into any power point in the home
- Get an instant, real-time voltage reading
- ‘Stable dot’ is the present voltage
- ‘Flashing dot’ is your maximum recorded voltage.
Across Australia the overall voltage of electricity delivered to homes has risen to damaging and dangerous levels.
Your home requires 225 volts to run efficiently, yet energy networks may be forcing you to consume voltages as high as 255V or higher.
High grid voltage can decrease your solar harvest by up to 15% It will degrade your solar inverter and could prevent you from generating power when the sun is out!
