Aquion is a startup that has taken up residence in an old Sony factory in Pittsburgh and is pumping out the batteries that it believes can help to power people in the future. With the advent of solar power, many people are finding that they are taking in more energy than they use. While storage options have been sparse, Aquion thinks that is can make a difference with batteries that can store excess solar energy to be used around the clock.
The idea is to use an all-natural product that is even safe enough to eat. Because of this, maintenance will be easy in the remote areas that use these batteries. Plus, the need to send power lines and power sources out to remote villages will no longer be needed because these batteries can store energy all year.
Aquion may have found a way to make sure even the most remote village can power itself with only the sun.
