New Solar Power & Energy Storage System Uses Former Electric Vehicle Batteries

November 14, 2023

One of the common myths about electric vehicle batteries is that they are hard to recycle when they are no longer being used or can’t be used in a vehicle. This notion is not true, and to the contrary, some former electric vehicle batteries are being used for stationary energy storage projects.

Freeman Hall, co-founder and CEO of B2U Storage Solutions, answered some questions about the project for CleanTechnica.
