Reducing battery waste helps your bottom line and the environment. The “Zero Battery Waste Guide” shows you exactly how.
“Our transition to clean energy storage shouldn’t always start by digging a hole in the ground – and batteries should never end in a landfill.” – John Connell, Vice President, SLI Products Group, Crown Battery
Many electric utilities are charging higher rates when there’s more demand (“peak pricing”). For instance, you may pay more for energy from 1:00 pm to 7:00 pm — exactly when you’re using energy-intensive air conditioning or industrial/commercial machines. Your goal is to pay the lowest possible price for electricity. In this article, you’ll discover how peak shaving can help, including: 1. How to ...
