Special guest Rhodes Carter of Iron Edison Battery joins the Ice Age Farmer podcast to discuss energy security and how to design a resilient, flexible off-grid energy system that will meet our needs — even in extreme temperatures. Rhodes takes through system design from generation to storage. I also noted that Iron Edison’s Nickel-Iron batteries can be more fully discharged without damage, perform even in freezing temps, and simply last longer, requiring less maintenance than standard lead-acid batteries…that’s why I reached out to them!

Iron Edison has extended a 5% DISCOUNT to IAF listeners — just mention the podcast when you call. You can also call just to talk through a project; IE has a staff of experienced solar designers who love nothing more than to speak to folks about their project and needs, and help translate that into what system/components would be best.
