Infinity Energy – Global educates international users on how to store the excess energy from their generators. These corrosive batteries above are an example of the improper use of battery storage in remote countries. These countries must use what they have to store the energy created by their diesel generators. These are also very dangerous as the corrosion gives off harmful gases that could explode.
Our recommendation is to create an outdoor unit that is similar to a miniature shed. This provides the batteries the air that they need and protection from the rain. Our next recommendation is to change from the diesel generators to solar generators to change the connections to non-exposed hoses to prevent corrosion. Lastly, we recommend switching to sealed-lead batteries to dramatically cut maintenance, reduce replacement costs and end the use of water in the batteries.
