Trojan’s new flooded solar batteries are tested up to a 17-year design life under IEC 61427 standard for solar batteries, and designed by Trojan’s engineering team specifically for solar and other renewable energy applications. Trojan’s new Solar line is manufactured in the U.S.
“Trojan has added deep-cycle flooded batteries to its new Solar line to better expand on market opportunities worldwide in the growing solar energy storage industry segment,” said Ganesh Balasubramanian, director of new market development for Trojan Battery. “Trojan’s new Solar branded line enables our partners to capture additional market share and increase installations in various types of renewable energy applications.”
In addition, the Trojan Solar flooded line includes the Industrial and Premium products which feature Trojan’s proprietary Smart Carbon formula. Smart Carbon addresses the effects of partial state of charge in applications where batteries are heavily cycled and often never fully recharged on a regular basis, a common occurrence in solar power systems.
The new deep-cycle flooded solar batteries join Trojan Solar AGM products which were announced in May 2017. The Solar AGM batteries offer a three-year warranty for stationary applications, and tested up to an eight-year design life under IEC 61427 standard for solar batteries. With its non-spillable design, the new Trojan Solar AGM batteries enable installers to customize the use and position of the batteries in customer applications, and are certified for non-hazardous shipping per U.S. DOT/IATA regulations.
