Roncelli Joins with IBEW Detroit to Deploy Invinity Battery at ZNE Center

On December 12, Roncelli attended the ground breaking ceremony on a project that marks a significant step towards transforming Detroit’s energy landscape. Hired by Local 58 of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) , Roncelli will be acting as the Construction Manager for the 8,000 square foot building addition creating one of the largest Zero Net Energy Buildings in the Mid-West. This facility will be added to the already existing union hall located in Corktown Detroit. The addition will serve as a powerhouse for change, housing four Invinity VS3 vanadium flow batteries.

A critical piece in the puzzle for the Zero Net Energy Center, The Invinity batteries will play a crucial role in storing and dispatching on-demand power generated by solar panels on the roof and solar arrays in the parking lot.
