Dear Friends of Iron Edison,
We are in the process of liquidating our inventory. This means we are offering you batteries below our wholesale cost. The list below describes if the batteries are new or used and the prices are marked to reflect this. We also have some inverters and solar charge controllers. Please be […]

We all know that renewable energy is the future. But recently something interesting happened: the future arrived.
It’s not all the way here – we are still getting far too much energy from […]
Dual pole mounted solar arrays and a beautiful Central Vermont backdrop. The mini split heat pumps in this home keep this array hard at work.
Without doubt, there are still some among us who think of off-grid living, with solar electricity, in terms of very small and very primitive […]
Beating a Hurricane with Solar and Batteries!
The community of Babcock Ranch, just outside of Fort Myers, FL, never lost power when hurrcane Ian deevasted the area. (FPL)
The sun doesn’t always shine, but so what?
Hurricane Ian didn’t prevent solar power and batteries from providing electricity 24/7 […]

Our least expensive and least polluting forms of electricity generation happen to be intermittent or variable. We can bring them up to being highly reliable, highly responsive forms of energy by the simple addition of energy storage. But a question […]

An old paradigm
The electricity most of us use comes from a system that was designed mostly over a hundred years ago. It was built around concepts […]
