Further reduction in electricity tariff spend: Schneider Electric releases new offer


Schneider Electric on Monday announced the availability of a new category of
Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPSs) smart solution from its APC, that can help
electricity consumers in Nigeria reduce total spend on electricity tariff.

This is coming on the heels of Federal Government’s dialogue with organised labour
which resulted in a suspension of the recent increase in electricity tariff.

The Schneider Electric’s Smart-UPS Lithium-ion, which is designed for local edge
environments micro data centres, offers trusted, premium power protection to
ensure network and data availability regardless of surges and unexpected blackouts.

It ensures consistent and reliable connectivity at the most critical moments,
increased UPS battery life, lower maintenance service costs, and fewer onsite visits,
providing up to a 50 percent lower total cost of ownership over 10 years.

“APC single-phrase UPS with Li-Ion battery fills industry gap by addressing customer
demand for greater resiliency, simplified maintenance and lower cost of ownership,”
Viviane Mike-Eze, the Communications Marketing Manager for Schneider Electric,
said in a press release.

She added, “some key benefits and features of Smart-UPS Lithium-ion include a
longer life span. The batteries can have a service life upwards of 10 years.

“Another interesting thing about this UPS is that it comes in smaller size and weight.
Due to higher energy densities, Li-Ion batteries, which it uses, have a much smaller
footprint and weigh about 30 percent less than sealed lead acid batteries.

“This Schneider Electric’s offer lowers maintenance and total cost of ownership.
With double the battery life, the amount of maintenance and associated costs
required over the life of the UPS is reduced by up to 53 percent.

As regards its safety feature, Mike-Eze noted that, “Schneider Electric’s/ APC
products have proven record of safety and best-in-class designs, as well as
adherence to safety regulations (UL 1973, UL1642/IEC62133), which provide added
peace of mind.

“It has better performance at higher temperatures. Li-Ion batteries can operate at
higher average temperatures (e.g., 40°C/104°F).
