ESI 2019 - Rolls Battery

SPI Q&A with | Rolls Battery

Your company will be exhibiting at SPI & ESI 2019, what is it that makes this an important event for your company?

As the largest solar event in North America, SPI & ESI continues to provide an opportunity to make new connections and to discuss potential opportunities to expand our growing distribution network worldwide. In addition, this event offers an ideal setting to reconnect with our existing customers.


What makes your booth a must visit for SPI & ESI 2019 Attendees?

Our wide range of deep cycle batteries is chosen for small to large-scale residential and commercial renewable energy applications. Our time at the show is often spent providing general Q&A and assistance with battery bank sizing as well as troubleshooting existing systems to prolong the performance and life of the product. Given that battery performance relies on proper installation and ongoing care, we see this as a valuable opportunity to meet face-to-face with those who are choosing and installing our products.

This year we will be showcasing the addition of our new LFP lithium models. Available in 24-volt 2.3 KWh and 48-volt 6.5 KWh stand-alone systems, these high-quality LiFePO4 batteries offer built-in BMS in a compact design, delivering maintenance-free convenience and fast charging capability in a versatile and scalable platform.


When you get a chance to walk the exhibit hall floor yourself, what is it you will be most interested to see? Any educational sessions, pavilions etc. you plan on attending? 

We often use this time to visit with various manufacturers and companies offering complementary products & services to familiarize ourselves with their products and to learn about any changes or new advancements in the industry. This also provides us with an opportunity to then offer guidance and educate our own customers on system setup and programming to ensure our batteries are properly charged and maintained.


Energy Storage is undertaking rapid advancements and growth. Give us an idea on how your company and product is being utilized now for energy storage.

We continue to see significant growth, particularly in off-grid and battery-based backup energy storage solutions. Our deep cycle models offer a variety of scalable solutions to meet the increasing capacity requirements of these applications and we continue to work closely with our distributors in various regions to expand and adapt our product offering to meet their particular demands.


Give us your thoughts on what the future holds for energy storage.

Although we've seen a growing interest in other battery technologies in recent years, deep cycle lead-acid batteries have and will continue to offer the best value when considering overall energy storage cost, safety, recyclability and product longevity in most residential and commercial battery-based storage applications.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
