Battery Types Used in Wind and Solar Electric Systems
LEAD ACID – BATTERIES FOR SOLAR POWER
The common automobile batteries in which the electrodes are grids of metallic lead-containing lead oxides that change in composition during charging and discharging. The electrolyte is diluted sulfuric acid.
The new AGM Battery technology has made a huge impact on lead-acid batteries, making it one of the best batteries to use in solar electric systems.
Industrial-type batteries can last as long as 20 years with moderate care, and even standard deep cycle batteries, such as the golf car type, should last 3-5 years. Intermediate batteries, such as the S460 and other batteries made by Surrette should last 7 to 12 years.
LITHIUM – LIFEPO4 – BATTERIES FOR SOLAR POWER
Lithium batteries have many advantages over traditional battery types. They have an extremely long cycle life and high discharge and recharge rates.
