Over 125 Years of Electric Innovation When George Westinghouse founded the Westinghouse Electric Company in 1886, he helped to create the electrical age by developing the first alternating current power generation system. That technology was the basis for the global electrical network the world uses today. The inspiration and legacy of over 125 years of Westinghouse Electric innovation is packed into each and every Westinghouse Battery that we create. INNOVATION YOU CAN BE SURE OF. The Westinghouse IFR Lithium-Iron Phosphate Rechargeable Batteries provide high quality green energy with excellent performance.
