Energy Savings for School Buildings
Low-voltage transformers are an essential part of electrical systems in school buildings and typically last 30-40 years. Often overlooked, these transformers can be a significant source of energy waste.
For New Installations:
The OPAL™ Series cuts 25-50% of transformers energy waste when compared to the currently rated, standard transformer*.
For Energy Retrofits:
The OPAL-R™ Series transformers reduce transformer energy waste by 80%** when replacing older pre-2007/TP1 transformers.
