A company is trying to get more consumers to buy their own electric power instead of buying from a centralized energy supplier, with a goal to make it cheaper and better.
Duke Energy Florida, which makes energy storage systems for companies, is selling the products at gas stations across the state.
The company says it is able to lower energy bills by 50% or more because of the batteries that are installed on the tanks.
Duke Energy says it uses more renewable energy than any other energy supplier in the country.
Its batteries are not only cheaper, but they are also more environmentally friendly.
The company’s products are designed to be recycled after the fact.
Duke says it has used solar energy to produce the energy in its systems.DUKE Energy says its products have been used in more than 50 million kilowatt hours (kWh) of energy.
The energy storage system is about half that amount.
For a home, Duke Energy is looking for customers to use the batteries to charge their own mobile phones.
Those who buy a product like this are buying an environmentally friendly alternative to a traditional energy provider.
The Duke Energy Florida project is part of Duke’s commitment to clean energy and is a step towards building a sustainable future for Florida.
It has received $15 million from Duke and the National Science Foundation for the project.
