Battery Terminals, Making A Connection

When purchasing or replacing batteries, it’s important to remember the type of terminals used on the batteries in order to make the right wiring connections. Deep-cycle batteries often come with UTL style terminals but there are other options that can be specific to your application.

UTL terminals allow wiring to be attached flat onto the top of the terminal and are typically available in short (UTL) and longer (UT) sizes. Large “L” and small “L” terminals are often used in applications where the wiring needs to be attached to the sides of the terminal. Batteries can also be ordered with an SAE terminal, which accommodates wiring that clamps around the terminal, much like car batteries.

Make sure to carefully order any new or replacement battery with the proper terminals. Your local battery distributor will be able to show you a variety of options that are best suited for your particular application.

Renewable Energy Storage Linked To Success In Statewide Plans

An article in Alternate Energy Magazine.com, an article by Megan Ray Nichols points out how renewable energy is continuing to outperform expectations. In Colorado, for example, Nichols showcases the states largest utility company Xcel Energy, planned to double its renewable energy capacity and in 2016 began a plan to shut down two coal plants and add 700 megawatts of solar energy, one gigawatt of wind, and 700 megawatts of natural gas.

To do this, the importance of energy storage was also a major factor in the distribution of energy. According to Xcel Energy, adding storage from batteries helped to mitigate the effects of generating power only in the sunshine or in windy conditions. According to Nichols the plan is still in the works and is moving to the Colorado Public Utilities Commission for approval.
