EnergyCell XLC - A Cost Effective Lithium-Ion Alternative

  • Presented By: Jorge Guzman, Product Specialist
  • For decades Lead-Acid batteries have always been the go to for solar + storage systems, a technology that is well understood, proven reliable and at a lowest cost per kWh. However, in recent years, advanced energy storage technologies such as Lithium-ion technology has gained popularity due to performance improvements in cycle life and energy density over traditional Lead-Acid batteries. What if there was a technology that offered all the advanced cycling benefits of a lithium ion battery but at the price point of a lead-acid battery? Join us for a discussion on the EnergyCell XLC, our latest offering on the road to briding the gap between the two technologies.
