Title: battery salt
Post by: thirteen on September 17, 2017, 10:03:57 PM
I asked a couple of years ago if anyone was using the newer salt batteries.  They sound ok on paper but I would like some usage information if possible. 13

I believe Aquion, who was making the salt water batteries went out of business

We've got a couple of them installed at the Coop where I work in storage "pilot" projects.  Still too early to speak much about their performance.

There's a guy named Ben Farmer at AltE store that has had one as long as I know.

The company was purchased by a Chinese company.  ~ks
