Reduce Your Carbon Footprint with ESS Batteries

A carbon footprint is big news at the moment. This is perhaps something we think about the most with food. How much carbon comes from growing one banana, a carton of almond milk or a fillet steak? Yes, your carbon footprint is everything that you as a human do. From the way you get to work, to whether you buy at a farmer’s market or a supermarket to where you go on holiday. It is all generating carbon which for a species that breathes oxygen, is probably not the best. So how can we make changes with ESS batteries to improve our carbon footprint and help the planet?

EVE brand

The EVE brand are happy to share that they consider carbon use in their factories. Additionally, the components they use are high quality and long lasting, which ensures the EVE ESS battery can be in use for a long time. Replacing broken items causes waste and even more carbon production in making a new battery to use. The EVE batteries we recommend are great quality. Therefore, the carbon footprint of this product spread over its lifecycle is favourable. Choosing the EVE brand at the cutting edge of battery technology can make such a difference.

Reliance on Fossil Fuels

With ESS batteries, you charge the batteries, which you can do in different carbon efficient ways. You can use your own solar panel or personal wind turbine to power this. These are great for your carbon footprint as there is no carbon in use. Being reliant on power you generate yourself reduces carbon use massively. After all, one of the biggest ways to reduce your carbon footprint is to turn down your thermostat. This in turn reduces power use. You can also use grid energy, but this is best when it is off-peak. At times when energy can be cheaper, such as overnight where there is less demand, there can be less reliance on fossil fuels than when energy is in big demand like in the early evening.

Recyclable Now

Another great thing about the EVE brand ESS batteries is that although big, they are like a regular battery. When they come to the end of their life, they can be recycled. That thought is for a long time in the future as their great quality means they can be in use for many years. However, when they are ready for disposal, you can recycle them. This is with technology we have now, not with technology we hope to have in the future. All of the parts and components can be broken down. This is a great advantage for your carbon footprint versus binning things.

Reducing your carbon footprint is an important consideration. If the environment is important to you, then this is one thing to be aware of. Switching to ESS batteries from regular mains supply is a big shift. However, it is one way in which you can make a big impact in the future. It is great for your pocket in saving money on regular energy bills as well as your carbon footprint. Make the change today and take a look at our products at EcoPowerDirect.
