  • We are only a component. We are not the whole system.
  • This chart is a representation of what Extreme Capacitors offers when compared to our competitors. In looking at this chart, the cost per unit power is on the x axis and the cost per unit energy is on the y axis. While capital cost is an important economic parameter, it should be realized that the total ownership cost (including the impact of equipment life and Operations & Management costs) is a much more meaningful index for a complete economic analysis. For example, while the capital cost of lead-acid batteries is relatively low, they may not necessarily be the least expensive option for energy management (load leveling) due to their relatively short life for this type of application.The battery costs in this chart have been adjusted to exclude the cost of power conversion electronics. The cost per unit energy has also been divided by the storage efficiency to obtain the cost per output (useful) energy.Installation cost also varies with the type and size of the storage. The information in the chart and table here should only be used as a guide not as detailed data.
  • This chart shows the inputs and outputs of energy in America today. On the left side are the sources of energy, 85% comes from oil, natural gas and coal. On the right side of the graph shows what happens to that energy which the left side has produced. The area in red is the useful and consumed energy. The area in grey is energy that is lost or not consumed. Over 55% of the electricity that is generated in the country is lost. And it is lost because it isn’t used.
