Hybrid Telecoms Power
- Firefly’s hybrid Energy Storage Systems provide instant OPEX savings for off-grid and diesel generator supported telecom tower infrastructure.
- Firefly’s hybrid Energy Storage Systems combine efficient battery storage and energy management. With compact modular design and robust, proven operating capabilities, Firefly’s hybrid systems are easily retrofitted onto existing tower systems providing reduced diesel use, longer servicing intervals and extended diesel generator operating life.
In countries where large regions have little or no access to the national electricity grid, telecom companies are currently employing diesel generators as power sources for antennas and base stations (BTS), which have high operating expenses for fuel transportation and maintenance, as well as high incidences of pilferage.
Installing Firefly’s hybrid generators in combination with solar PV dramatically lowers operating expenses, thereby simultaneously reducing logistical and security considerations and costs.
Moreover, lower dependency on fossil fuels improves a company’s strategic planning capabilities and shareholder value, as it is no longer highly dependent on the volatile oil prices and can roll-out its future activities with more predictable and fixed long-term expenses.
