Missouri U Chooses Lead Batteries for Solar Power Storage

New Microgrid at Missouri University of Science and Technology Will Use Lead Battery Storage

Lead batteries are reinforcing their title as a viable and sought-after energy storage solution, this time, at the Missouri University of Science and Technology.

In partnership with the Advanced Lead Acid Battery Consortium (ALABC), the university will create an EcoVillage microgrid on its campus using solar panels in combination with lead battery energy storage units. Lead batteries were chosen for their outstanding performance, reliability, cost and recycling potential.

"… we believe [lead batteries] provide an excellent energy storage option for this project,” said Alistair Davidson of ALABC.
