Today's energy system came into existence around 1900 due to the many inventions of the time, such as the move away from horse-drawn carriages and gas lamps to cars and electric lights. Now, we have the potential to make the next major change away from fossil fuels.
After a storm like Michael or Florence, it may take weeks or months to fully restore electricity. Solar and energy storage technologies can help address immediate, short-term needs while building a resilient electricity grid for the future.
No matter what the extreme weather situation is, strain on the grid is increasing. In general, it matters less these days to a utility how much energy is needed; more important is when and where energy needs to be distributed.
Larger grids make more sense in places that have more landmass, like continents. But even they can benefit from the concept of adding in microgrids to help supply power during blackouts, which is pretty much the entire concept of a microgrid.
Sun Xtender® Deep Cycle AGM Batteries for renewable energy storage are manufactured in the USA by Concorde Battery Corporation and are built to the same demanding standards crucial to supporting the aircraft industry. To facilitate maximum conductivity & charge acceptance Sun Xtender® batteries are constructed with copper alloy corrosion free terminals & robust intercell connections. Endurance and optimal float life are achieved through plates thicker than the industry standard. Sun Xtender® Batteries' AGM maintenance free design is an ideal solution for off grid and grid tied systems.
