The Ockendon Academy

  • May 28, 2014


The Ockendon Academy have installed a Powerstar Lite 288 kVA Voltage Optimisation unit.

The Background

The Ockendon Academy is a large secondary School based in South Ockendon which believes that education outside the classroom contributes as much to students’ development as their academic studies. Being an Eco-School sustainability is very important to them, having already installed solar panels they felt that Voltage Optimisation gave long term cost saving on electrical items / lights which are used during night periods around the Academy. It would also significantly reduce their energy costs and reduce their carbon emissions.

The Installation

  • Powerstar Lite 288 kVA Voltage Optimisation unit


  • Savings of £122,720 on electricity usage over the project lifespan
  • 345 tones of CO2 emissions avoided of the
    project lifetime.



“Evogreen arrived at the Academy to perform the site survey, costings were agreed and then a planned installation was proposed with timings for delivery of unit / fitting and installation dates. Installation all went as planned without any problems or delays. I found working with Evogreen to be helpful and staff understood our requirements, we feel the installation was a success.” – John Fry – Estates Manager
