Second Life for Old Electric-Car Batteries

Engineers are thinking outside of the box and finding a new use for spent electric car batteries. General Motors and energy technology company ABB will be developing a system combining degraded electric car batteries into a package unit for use in the nation’s electrical grid. Recycling green energy products to reduce electrical use is a very win-win situation. cool

Of course, because electric cars like the Volt and the Leaf are new to the market, there will not be a large supply of spent electric-car batteries for some time to come.
