Energy Efficiency Initiative
Tesco has committed itself to a zero-carbon status by 2050, an admirable goal that has required the retail giant to alter the way it operates its infrastructure. As a result, the company actively sought out ways to reduce its energy wastage, and began looking for low-loss transformers that were up to the task.
The unique amorphous core in our Wilson e2 distribution transformers was exactly the upgrade Tesco were after, offering the most energy efficient solution for the company’s estate. Exceeding their demands for a low-loss transformer, the e2 delivers a super low loss solution, providing incredibly minimal core losses. Over 90 Wilson e2 transformers have been installed to date, with no failures or recalls required. It has reduced Tesco’s wasted energy by over 9 million kWh and saves the company over an estimated £810,000 a year.
