How industry leaders have been using C&D power solutions to power their operations for over 100 years
CNN Data Center Case Study
Pure Lead Plus® UPS Battery made its way into the CNN data center in 2018.
C&D’s UPS12-705PLP was preferred over other manufacturers for its True Front Access, PLP technology, and industry-leading warranty.
Over the years, CNN has experienced a cleaner, easier-to-maintain data center with overall cost savings on installation, racking, cabling, and site planning.
Energy Storage in Boothbay, Maine Case Study
Located in a small coastal town with a population of 2,000 is the first non-wires alternative (NWA) application of battery-based storage for utility infrastructure in the US, using advanced lead batteries.
Together with Convergent and other partners, C&D Technologies helped supply a 0.5 MW energy storage NWA solution to support Boothbay’s electricity grid, which experiences increased peak load during the summer’s major tourism surge.
Since 2015, the system has maintained 100% uptime during peak summer months, demonstrating the reliability and responsiveness of energy storage as a utility resource.
Anti-Theft Advanced Energy Storage Case Study
Preventing the theft of batteries is crucial in areas where power is on an unstable grid. C&D rose to the challenge of one customer by engineering our first anti-theft solution for a partial state-of-charge operation (PSoC).
Leveraging our AES product line, with advanced C&D Nano-Carbon and DCS technology, C&D created an 8-volt VRLA AGM GC2 size battery with a hardened steel anti-theft bus bar and unique installation method.
The non-standard size, voltage, string pattern, and busbar are a triple threat that help deter theft.
