Battery Storage

Solar is not generated in the evening when the sun goes down. If you would like to continue using solar energy at night, you may want to purchase a battery that can be charged by solar energy during the day and used when it gets dark. There are many battery systems on the market for solar energy storage, from the Tesla Powerwall to lithium ion batteries. There is even a system being used at Yellowstone National Park using the batteries from old Toyota Camry hybrids. Consult your solar installer about the best battery for you.
