Canada to phase out lead-acid batteries in residential buildings

A major Canadian energy supplier is planning to phase down lead- acid batteries for residential use.

The company, Canadian SunPower, announced Wednesday it will phase out the use of the batteries by the end of the year, as it aims to save money and ensure that the energy from them is available to consumers.

The batteries were used to power many buildings during the summer and winter, when the average Canadian home was not being supplied with energy from natural gas.

Canada’s largest energy provider said it will spend $15.7 million over two years to replace the batteries, which are used to heat and cool residential homes.

The plan to phase them out will allow the company to save $1.4 million a year on energy costs.

Canadian SunPower CEO Jim Clark told reporters in Ottawa that he is confident the batteries will not be necessary to supply electricity to households.

“We have been working with the Department of Energy and are committed to ensuring that our customers are not impacted by this change,” Clark said.

“We will be looking for ways to reduce our energy costs, including the battery replacement.”

Canada’s power market is struggling to cope with a drop in natural gas prices.

Natural gas prices have dropped sharply since 2014 and are now below $US1.50 per thousand cubic feet.

The move comes just days after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced plans to make the country the first country in the world to phase in the elimination of its lead-based paint and other lead-containing materials from buildings.

In the U.S., the Trump administration has said it wants to ban lead paint from federal buildings.
