With stay-at-home orders in place in many states, homes utilizing deep-cycle batteries for power could be increasingly straining their systems. As more people stay home, more appliances and electrical accessories that would typically be off during the day will be used.
Steve Higgins, Technical Services Manager at Rolls Battery highlights some of the frequently asked questions when it comes to proper maintenance and service of lead acid batteries.
Battery manufacturers have improved deep cycle battery performance through the use of additives, but not all of them result in the same benefit to customers.
Span Raises $10.2 Million for Reinvention of Home Electrical Panel to Optimize Solar, Energy Storage, and Electric Vehicle Charging
Span's smart panel brings greater resiliency to homes with increased flexibility when the power goes out and real-time energy monitoring plus controls
The increase in renewable energy homes and small businesses began as a way to lower power usage costs, but with more people sequestered in one place using electrical accessories, battery storage systems can suffer if they are not purposely built for energy storage use.
SimpliPhi Power Teams Up with Footprint Project to Deliver Clean Energy Microgrid to Field Hospital for Matamoros Migrant Camp Fighting COVID-19
SimpliPhi's batteries combined with Solar PV are providing power 24/7 for the COVID-19 'pop-up' clinic at the Matamoros Migrant Camp of 3,000 asylum seekers in Mexico at the Texas border
Hydropower may become less costly as startups are beginning to use pre-existing facilities and discontinue dam building. Thus, construction costs would be minimal and engineers could implement hydropower on a much larger scale.
With the constant growth in demand for manufactured goods and environmental protections under coordinated assault, there's never been a more important time for manufacturers to take their part in air pollution seriously.
Three startups with solar and energy storage technologies selected for Shell GameChanger Accelerator™ Powered by NREL
Participating companies will receive non-dilutive funding to develop commercially viable clean technologies
To understand the effects the crisis could have on the renewable energy market, we conducted a survey of project developers, analyzed data from the LevelTen Marketplace, and talked to our customers. Here are five key takeaways.
Cheap renewable energy and low-priced batteries are anticipated to lead to wind and solar producing 50 percent of the world's electricity generation by 2050.
The Blockchain promises to deliver a decentralized energy system that can seamlessly incorporate the large companies providing energy to millions, the small businesses hoping to get into the market, and the individual user with excess energy to sell off.
With Tigo's TS4-A-O (Optimization Add-ons) units, the system complies with California's mandated NEC 2017 rapid shutdown requirements. This customer also has module-level monitoring with full visibility into his system via Tigo SMART Website & App.
If certain activities result in changes to the load, companies end up bearing huge losses because of failure of system or damage to expensive equipment. Therefore, the entire power system must be protected using a switchgear system.
The trends with the biggest impact that we are seeing all revolve around the design of module frames. There are a number of module manufacturers who have reduced the length of the flange found on the underside of a typical module frame.
