VDC benefits

 

A green energy storage solution….with an impressive ROI!

While many green solutions are good for the environment, few actually have a return on investment that can help a company’s bottom line. The VDC line of flywheel energy storage systems not only offers improved reliability, takes up less space and has virtually no maintenance they also have an attractive 2.5 year ROI and can save a facility hundreds of thousands of dollars over a 20 year life.

Relative life cycle cost chartThe figures above are based on a typical installation of a 250kVA UPS using 10 year design life VRLA batteries housed in a cabinet. The yearly maintenance for the batteries is based on a recommended quarterly check on the battery health to have some predictability on their availability. These figures don’t include floor space or cooling cost saving that can be achieved by using the flywheel energy storage vs. batteries.

Let us customize an ROI calculation based on your particular application and costs. Our applications engineers can help guide you through the process of determining your ROI with just a few questions.

In addition, VYCON offers attractive lease-to-purchase options that can allow you to have a lower capital cost upfront, make yearly “usage” payments (instead of paying for battery maintenance) and own the flywheel after 5 years. The savings after the purchase are all to your benefit. Contact us for more information on either ROI or various payment options.
