The evening will cover marine batteries, types, sizes, uses, how to specify, how to connect, and care and maintenance . The Battery Outlet, located in the Gotha Street Industrial Park in Trenton, is a partner of CPS_ECP in this area and provides a 10% discount to CPS-ECP Quinte District members when they show their CPS-ECP membership card.safety and demonstration day at the end of the 2018 boating season. This will again allow local boaters to be able to legally dispose of their outdated flares (must be replaced after four years from date of manufacture) while at the same time learning, through hands on firing of their outdated flares, how these things actually work. It is too late to learn when an emergency strikes your boat. Put Saturday September 15, 2018 on your calendar for this event. There will be more information as the date draws closer next boating season.
