Global lockdown measures drastically reduced air and road traffic, showing us that a world with less pollution is possible.
As industries found new ways to operate during the lockdown, South Africa's leading battery manufacturer showed their support for essential services and frontline workers. This included assisting them when their emergency vehicles and standby solutions needed batteries.
Renewable, cleaner energy
The reduction in nitrogen and carbon dioxide emissions during lockdown was a glimpse into a world with cleaner skies and air. Researchers also found that solar panels were able to collect more sunshine during lockdown, giving more hope that cleaner air in the long-term is possible.
Hygiene and safety remain a top priority
As lockdown measures eased and customers attended to their car battery needs, the battery specialiststook steps to keep their staff and customers safe when visiting any of their nationwide branches.
Powering up old and new cars
People who can afford it are relying less on public transport, buying new or second-hand cars. In some cases, people are even restoring their old and abandoned vehicles. New, second-hand and restored cars all require reliable batteries to keep moving, and people are calling on the battery specialists to check the car battery to make sure they can go the distance.
Battery manufacturers recognise the urgency for cleaner energy, to adapt and to operate in the COVID world safely, not only for employees but also for their customers.
