This definitely looks like an interesting project.

Wow - do I understand this correctly? -
You're setting up 48 pairs of 3V, 100AH cells, so each pair is 200AH.
Putting the 48 pairs in series gives (nominally) 144V.

That's a lot of cells! And they're not small. Should be a very nice pack.

I suggest you post your offer in our "Fossil Fuel Free" sub-forum.
I would guess that anyone on this site interested in battery projects of that size will go there regularly. Fossil Fuel Free - Fuel Economy, Hypermiling, EcoModding News and Forum -

Good luck with both building and selling!

I used a pack of 4x 3.2V 40AH LiFePO4 cells in series, to power headlights and fans on my gas powered Civic and Accord. It weighs in at 16.2 lb. including a small BMS. Looks like your 96-cell pack will weigh in at something like 700 lb!
Coast long and prosper.
