PV batteries add new sizes to Trojan Battery RE line

The U1-AGM and 22-AGM from Trojan Battery are designed to address a diverse range of solar applications: roadway and area lighting, traffic signs and security lighting, off-grid and grid-tied solar home systems, and industrial and backup power applications.

May 10, 2011 — Trojan Battery Company, deep-cycle battery manufacturer, expanded its AGM product line for the renewable energy (RE) market space with the launch of the U1-AGM and 22-AGM models. The new deep-cycle AGM batteries address the power storage needs of renewable energy off-grid and grid-tied solar home systems, solar lighting, industrial and backup power applications that require daily battery cycling capabilities. The addition of the U1-AGM and 22-AGM models expands Trojan’s current AGM line to now feature a wider variety of battery sizes.

The U1-AGM and 22-AGM are designed to address a diverse range of solar applications: roadway and area lighting, traffic signs and security lighting, off-grid and grid-tied solar home systems, and industrial and backup power applications. They suit solar systems in remote locations without access to the grid or where it is too expensive to pull power to a particular area.

The U1-AGM and the 22-AGM are maintenance-free and feature a combination of thick plates and grid design as well as a glass fiber separator for high power density. This is said to enhance performance and extend cycle life. Trojan’s deep-cycle AGM batteries are low-temperature tolerant, and shock and vibration resistant. They also have a low internal resistance for higher discharge current and higher charging efficiency.

“As the global market for solar systems continues to grow, Trojan is expanding its RE battery offerings to include products specifically designed for these unique applications,” said Bryan Godber, vice president of renewable energy at Trojan Battery Company. “Renewable energy systems rely on daily battery discharge and recharge cycling to power the system. The Trojan line of AGM batteries provides outstanding cycling characteristics, optimum performance and rugged durability.”

Trojan Battery Company manufactures deep-cycle batteries, offering technologically advanced flooded, AGM and gel batteries. For more information, visit http://www.trojanbatteryRE.com/
