Jun 07, 2010, 17:19 ET from Trojan Battery Company

SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif., June 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Trojan Battery Company, the world's leading manufacturer of deep cycle batteries for renewable energy applications, today announced it has joined the Alliance for Rural Electrification (ARE), a global network of innovative companies and professionals that specialize in rural electrification, working together to provide technological and financial solutions to the world's rural communities.

"Those of us living in developed societies take electricity for granted. But the truth is more than 1.6 billion people around the world do not have access to electricity, 80 percent of whom live in rural communities," said Bryan Godber, vice president of renewable energy for Trojan Battery. "Battery-based renewable energy technologies have made it possible to bring stable and reliable power to these remote areas, effectively changing the way people live. Trojan's deep cycle batteries provide ideal energy storage solutions for standalone renewable energy systems in these remote areas. We are proud to be joining a wonderful organization such as ARE which supports our efforts in bringing power to these parts of the world."

ARE works at the highest level with multilateral organizations, financial institutions and governments to make sustainable access to electricity a reality for developing countries and facilitate the involvement of its members within a rural electrification dialogue and network—allowing companies like Trojan, whose products are used predominantly in recreational applications, to reach out to the most remote communities, helping to improve their lives.

Trojan Battery is a proud sponsor of the upcoming ARE reception for off-grid professionals, June 10th, 2010, at Intersolar in Munich. For more information regarding ARE visit www.ruralelec.org
