Understand Your ROI Potential Before Evaluations

Enterprises can achieve an increase in performance and a reduction in maintenance costs by switching from lead acid to our Lithium SAFEFlex batteries.

Green Cubes offers a free online Return on Investment (ROI) and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) assessment that will be based on your specific fleet and facilities.  The result of this assessment is we will identify areas of your operation where Lithium SAFEFlex batteries can make the most impact, as well as demonstrate the rate of return you can expect based on how you use your fleet.

You can enter your fleet information into our online ROI/TCO assessment to provide recommendations on upgrading your fleet to use Lithium SAFEFlex batteries. Our analysis is based on basic facility information like the number of vehicles, number of shifts, charging information, labor costs, etc.

Once our ROI/TCO assessment demonstrates the returns and you confirm these returns meet your internal thresholds for adopting new battery technology, Green Cubes will provide a risk-free trial of a battery/charger system, along with battery fleet monitoring software, so you can validate that the intended savings have been realized.

An example of the data we collect for the ROI/TCO assessment is shown to the right.

As an example, the assessment of an 80 truck evaluation over a five year period resulted in a $4.2M operational expense reduction.

In summary, Lithium SAFEFlex provides enterprise customers with immediate capital and operational savings when compared with lead acid batteries.  This ROI with Lithium SAFEFlex can be achieved in less than a one year period and this has been repeatedly verified with our base of enterprise customers.

Listed below are the operational and capital efficiencies achieved by our enterprise customers.

  • Increase in Productivity by 30% Minimum – Eliminate battery changes with faster charge times (from 100% DOD to fully charged in 1 hour).
  • Lower Cost of Operation by 30% – Eliminate labor and time for battery changes and eliminating the burden of battery watering (every battery watered every 2 weeks).
  • Lower Electrical Utility Cost for Charging – Lithium battery charging is 95% efficient vs. 80% efficiency with lead acid batteries. Lithium batteries do not need an 8 to 10 hour equalization charge once a week.
  • Improved Safety Conditions for Associates – Eliminate battery changes and contact with battery electrolyte due to sealed “maintenance free” batteries.
  • Improved Environmental Conditions – Eliminate lead acid batteries from your facility. Eliminate lead from your environmental footprint.
  • Improved Asset Utilization – 100% utilization with lithium batteries (one battery per truck) vs. up to 3 lead acid batteries per truck (33% asset utilization with 1 battery in the truck and 2 in storage).
  • Capital Cost Avoidance – Eliminate battery handling rooms, ventilation accommodations, eye wash stations and safety gear.
  • Returned Floor Space – Eliminate battery rooms and re-allocate this area to become a staging area, additional pallet rack, break room, or maintenance shop.  At a nominal $100.00 per square foot, these savings could be significant.

Customer Ratings and Reviews

Green Cubes is a great company, great engineers, great product. That’s been kind of my number one go to [lithium] battery.

President, Industrial Power Company

The thing I like about Green Cubes is that they have other lines of business outside of material handling batteries, they have been in the lithium world for a long time. I can trust they will likely stay in business

VP, Industrial Battery Company

Green Cubes [differentiates] on its capability to custom design for things like the hardware, the firmware, and inverters. They also have economies of scale because they make battery systems for things like forklifts.

VP, Powered Cart OEM

I am doing some work with them right now. We’re learning their products, and looking at demos. They have good people. They seem like they know the technology well – they say they’re a technology company. I like that they’ve been in the lithium business a long time. I can trust they will likely stay in business.

Sales Manager, Industrial Battery Company

Green Cubes Technology would be my go-to for lithium applications.

Branch Manager, OEM

I’ve told my friends at Green Cubes, I don’t plan on going anywhere. I believe in loyalty.
