Concord, Ontario /pvbuzz media/ June 20, 2016 — Sentinel Solar, a leading Canadian owned and operated solar products distribution and manufacturing company, today announced the availability of Aquion Energy’s brand new 24-volt battery, the Aspen 24S. This brand new version of the Aspen Battery is in response to high demand for a 24-volt version of the popular 48-volt saltwater batteries.
The Aspen 24S battery is designed for energy-intensive applications that use solar panels, such as off-grid solar-powered LED lighting, as well as small pumps and motors. It is also an ideal drop-in replacement for lead acid batteries. And like all Aquion Energy batteries, it’s Cradle to Cradle Certified™, safe, and sustainable.
End users had to upgrade their 24-volt battery based inverters to 48-volt battery based inverters, and were limited to the Aspen 48S if they had to replace their battery banks with the Aspen Battery System. Now, they no longer have to—since the Aspen 24S is an ideal drop-in replacement for existing systems using 24-volt lead-acid batteries.
“What makes the Aspen battery great, is its flexibility and cost efficiency,” said Adam Webb, President of Sentinel Solar at the company’s Calgary office. “The Aspen 24S expands this cost efficiency for end users by saving them the cost to change their inverters.”
The Aspen batteries have been proven to outperform and outlast other popular battery brands currently in the market. The battery delivers long cycle life, deep cycling capability, and robust performance for a wide variety of applications. The Aquion batteries are the first and only batteries in the world to be Cradle to Cradle Certified, an esteemed quality mark for products made from sustainable materials and manufacturing process.
“The Aspen 24S just doubled market opportunities for the saltwater battery,” said Sentinel Solar’s Sales Manager, Jason Cohen speaking at the company’s Concord, Ontario head office. “Introducing a 24-volt version to the Aspen Battery Series is a direct response to dealer input from end user feedback.”
Sentinel Solar invites its current and prospective dealers is contact the company and place their orders immediately as these batteries are in stock and ready to ship.
“As always, we are here to enable your business,” added Jason Cohen. “Our sales team is ready to answer all your questions, and provide more information for those interested in learning more about this new product.”
