2ndLife Batteries® was established in 2017 as a spin-off of WeRecycleBatteries.com. At the time, John Kincaide, President & CEO, observed an enormous volume of large format advanced battery recycling inventory still had life to give. The company offers a lower cost alternative and reduced carbon footprint, as second-life batteries produce the same power outcome at significant cost savings compared to new lithium-ion and lead-acid energy storage systems. Since its inception, 2ndLife Batteries® has shipped over 8.5 MWH of batteries, certified and tested, to the U.S., Canada, and western Africa. Besides solar, the company specializes in demand charge management. Utilities in the U.S. can charge up to $30/kw in some markets when power exceeds prescribed kilowatt limits, or time of day, or season, or a combination of all three cases. 2ndLife Batteries’ Jeeves™ ROI Demand Charge Optimizer service uses collected real power data to run thousands of simulations to minimize risk and accurately maximize ROI – before energy storage deployment. Using Jeeves™ ROI Optimizer, customers are confident that they can lower their EV charging and industrial power costs, saving tens of thousands of dollars per year.
