Trojan Battery & Team Sustain win big at Intersolar India

Innovative remote telecom project earns coveted Intersolar award.

Trojan Battery, a leading manufacturer of deep-cycle batteries, and its project partner, Team Sustain, were named winners of the Intersolar “Solar Projects in India” award (‘Solar Building, Industrial and Commercial Use’ category) during Intersolar India in Mumbai earlier this week.

 Specifically, the companies were recognized for their Remote Telecom project featuring Trojan’s new advanced lead acid Smart Carbon™ batteries. Team Sustain’s solution with Trojan Battery enhances the ability of remote mobile towers to serve as the communication backbone for rural India, contributing to the region’s social and economic development. Team Sustain’s hybrid photovoltaic system with Trojan Smart Carbon™ batteries 1 significantly increases telecom tower up time in support of financial and mobile communications services.
To ensure reliable transmission of critical system data, Team Sustain developed the Green Energy & Energy Management System (GeEMS), a remote monitoring software program which enables customers to quickly and easily monitor the operation and health of the entire telecom site including the batteries that power the site. How it works: the software connects to the system’s controllers and wireless telemetry to manage the battery bank; the battery bank’s state of charge (SOC) is monitored by the software, with key information transmitted and stored on off-site servers for later data evaluation. 
  1. A key component of the project is the use of Trojan’s Smart Carbon™ batteries to address Partial State of Charge (PSOC), a common issue in solar off-grid applications.
