Southwest Airlines Goes Electric

Ground Support Case Study

OVERVIEW

Southwest Airlines recently embarked on an 18-month, multi city trial of NexSys batteries from EnerSys that feature proprietary TPPL technology and a virtually maintenance-free design with no watering requirements. With no need for watering, the maintenance demands and risks associated with flooded leadacid batteries are eliminated, freeing up ground crews to focus on other tasks.

"The TPPL technology at the heart of these batteries is helping us facilitate our move away from diesel power, and we expect that it will help us save money in the process."
