WindStax® Integrates Aqueous Hybrid Ion Battery Storage into Advanced Wind Power Systems
Pittsburgh wind turbine manufacturer WindStax is now offering Aquion Energy’s advanced Aqueous Hybrid Ion battery into their consumer-based microgrid system.
Pittsburgh, PA (PRUnderground) January 21st, 2015
Staying true to their vision of blazing new trails in alternative energy production, WindStax, a manufacturer of large vertical axis wind turbines for consumer and commercial use, has made a leap closer to energy independence in their microgrid systems. The company has integrated revolutionary Aqueous Hybrid Ion (AHITM) batteries to store wind energy for use on demand. These safe, reliable, and modular batteries are made by Aquion Energy, another Pittsburgh-based innovator in alternative energy. The firms are located blocks from each other in the Strip District and Lawrenceville.
“WindStax has installed a dozen microgrid systems using traditional battery technologies”, says WindStax founder and president Ronald Gdovic. “They work well but we are applying leading edge wind power generation and energy distribution in our systems while relying on century-old lead acid battery storage technology. Aquion Energy’s AHI battery is based on a safe saltwater electrolyte and nontoxic materials yet provides much greater stability and superior cycle life compared to other battery options.” The first system of this type worldwide will be installed nearby in Braddock PA this March and the company has begun to offer the AHI option to select distributors nationally.
