Trojan Battery Sales announced that it is now offering the PowerHouse Grid Energy Storage Solution.
Trojan Battery Sales, a major distributor of batteries and related products throughout the southeast region of the U.S., today announced that it is now offering the PowerHouse Grid™ Energy Storage Solution.
The residential energy storage solutions feature robust maintenance-free Trojan Solar AGM batteries, which are designed to not only provide emergency backup power capabilities during devastating storms, grid brownouts and blackouts, but can also be used to provide supplemental off-grid power.
Rebates are being offered in Florida by JEA to its service area customers under the JEA Battery Incentive Program Policy. This program offers homeowners a rebate towards the purchase of a residential battery storage system.
In addition, Trojan Battery Sales will offer the Powerhouse Portable designed for rapid response emergency backup power. The simple plug-and-play design enables customers to easily connect one to six PV solar modules with any Trojan battery, even golf carts equipped with batteries, for quick access electrical power.
"The PowerHouse Grid Energy Storage solution can be used in both grid-tied and off-grid applications," said Paul Claro, vice president and general manager for Trojan Battery Sales. "The plug-and-play systems feature Trojan Solar AGM batteries to provide continuous or emergency backup power for homeowners. We are also very excited about offering these types of solutions enabling Trojan Battery Sales to transition from a battery distributor to a partner and solutions provider for all types of customers and applications."
PowerHouse Grid Energy Storage systems come in four models and offer easy installation. Each solution uses solar PV panels to charge the Trojan batteries, and provides three to five days of autonomous residential backup power and can easily be configured for longer durations.
"A battery system that stores energy produced by solar panels allows JEA customers with solar PV systems to take the next step toward home energy independence," said Edgar Gutierrez, manager, customer solutions with JEA. "With the addition of a battery, customers can store the excess energy generated by their solar PV system and draw on it as needed, maintaining the full retail value of that energy and reducing their need to receive electricity from the JEA grid."
More information on PowerHouse Grid Energy Storage systems and pricing, as well as, details on the JEA rebate, please contact Trojan Battery Sales at (800) 259-4970 or via email at GoSolar@trojanbatterysales.com.

Tropos Transitions to Manufacturer with Release of New Fire Response and EMS Bed Packages for Utility Electric Low Speed Vehicles
Company rebrands as Tropos Motors™ to focus on manufacturing of eCUV’s (compact electric utility vehicle) designed for corporate, fleet, first-responder, agriculture, last-mile delivery and facilities maintenance applications
SAN JOSE, California, March 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Leading the street-legal eCUV (compact electric utility vehicle) market in the United States, Tropos Technologies has evolved from distributor of the Cenntro METRO to manufacturer of electric low-speed vehicles and trucks. Rebranding as Tropos Motors™, the company will continue to distribute the METRO throughout the U.S. under the new ABLE™ product line, as well as develop additional vehicle offerings. The first of these offerings from Tropos serve the first responder market with the ABLE FRV™ and Emergency Medical Service ABLE EMS™ eCUVs.
"The demand we see from the first responder market is for smaller and more maneuverable vehicles to meet their operational requirements, as well as vehicles that are of automotive quality but can be used indoors," said CEO, John Bautista. "The ABLE product line meets these needs as a dependable compact utility workhorse, that’s still street-legal."
The ABLE EMSo™ bed package is designed to carry one patient on a full-size, standard ambulance stretcher, one EMS attendant seat, lockable storage for extra supplies which is accessible from the attendant seat and a fire extinguisher. The completely enclosed—or doorless—cab also includes a large rear window. The adjustable attendant seat may be locked in different locations on the seat guide rails to accommodate different emergency situations.
"The ABLE EMSc (contained) and EMSo (open) are ideal for large commercial buildings, production facilities, office parks, or entertainment venues that cater to large crowds," said Scot Harden Sales and Marketing Director at Tropos Motors. "This includes factory floors, large arenas, stadiums and concert venues, transportation depots, fairgrounds, convention centers and other locations."
Also newly released is the ABLEFRV (Fire-Response Vehicle) bed package from Tropos. It can transport up to 125 gallons of water to emergency locations or can connect to stand-pipes, making it a valuable equipment asset extinguishing fires in spaces large and small, indoors and out. This upfit body for the standard ABLE vehicle comes with an electric rewind Hannay 4000 series reel and Scotty Around the Pump Class A foam system with 5-gallon foam cell the equivalent to up to 1000 gallons of water.
"The compact size of the ABLE FRV allows it to travel on stadium walkways and on the field, or along sidewalks within gated communities or campuses that standard trucks cannot reach," said Harden. "We also see uses on campgrounds where sprinkler systems and fire hydrants are not available, and standard equipment may take a long time to arrive on the scene."
Unlike other eCUVs that may be built on chassis that are too heavy, unbalanced or designed for internal combustion engines, the ABLE chassis is specially designed for electric utility vehicles. Likewise, the ABLE is not built on a repurposed golf cart or UTV chassis. The computer designed chassis strikes a perfect balance for high performance, efficiency, durability, and versatility and features a lightweight, modular, well-balanced structure, leveraging automotive-grade components.
"The ABLE chassis is a workhorse," continued Bautista. "With our Easy Swap System, a few tools and a few minutes the bed packages can be switched out to transform the vehicle from a campus tour hauler to a delivery vehicle or work truck with standard pick-up, box, and tradesman bed packages."
With an on-road payload capacity of up to 1,100 pounds (1,500 pounds off-road), and a tight turning radius of 150 inches (12.5 feet) the ABLE is tough enough for the big jobs, yet small enough to get into tight spaces. This 10kW ultra-low maintenance zero-emission vehicle has 775 ft-lbs of rear wheel torque and an estimated 144 MPGe, up to 4.3 M/KwH, with a towing capacity of up to 2000 pounds. It has a variable range of 40–160 miles, and a top speed of 25 mph or 35 mph as defined by local laws, or 40 mph off-road, based on customization.
Tropos Motors will have the new uplift packages on display and in the Ride and Drive at the Advanced Clean Transportation Expo May 1 – May 3, 2018, in Long Beach, California (booth #1327). For dealer information please contact sales[at]tropostech.com.
