Buying Batteries in 2019? : For daily-cycle applications, LIFEPO4 are lower cost/kWh and longer-lasting
than Li-ion or VRLA!
For weekly-cycling applications, GEL excels on cost/kWh basis.
- You can save up to 90% on electricity costs compared with only using diesel generators.
- Achieve constant, stable and reliable power supply compared with PHCN’s bad-grid.
- GEL 2V battery energy storage banks are energy-efficient and cost-effective, especially in large deployments that do not require daily cycling.
Ritility Research indicates that BYD LiFeP04 can last 8xLonger &
costs 3xCheaper than QUANTA VRLA.
LiFeP04 storage can save up to 75% in space & up to 75% in weight compared with GEL of same energy capacity. The high power density makes LiFeP04 suitable for apartments, offices and other shared spaces.
- Lithium storage is scalable. This means you can add or remove units as your needs change. VRLA batteries are not scalable as you cannot reliably mix old and new batteries. LiFePO4 batteries are the most durable and stable of the lithium battery technologies, This results in better value-added in terms of cost/kWh.
