Humm. It seems unlikely to me that all the "excess" voltage goes to generate heat, rather than say additional motive power, in motor/pump/compressor systems, but I guess the ASA just work on paper evidence and without another "independent report" showing anything contrary they didn't have much choice.

It'd be interesting to do an experiment or two with a variac and an energy meter...

Interesting stuff here http://www.baldor.com/pdf/manuals/PR2525.pdf start at page 65 for voltage related reading

I think the summary on page 67 says it all.

Just reading on some business web pages that if Vphase don't find extra funding in the next 10 days they will go into administration.

Another ridiculous scam. A post recently was talking about two showers on together and the potential overload to the service fuse.

It's not a problem! Drop the voltage to 115v and you can have both showers with no problems! The vast majority of installations targeted will see little reduction in energy consumption

I wonder Ebee how many of the public, yet alone those reading on here, would view "thermostatically controlled heating devices" as including a fridge or freezer?
