Solar battery storage is expensive, but with advancements in technology it’s likely that batteries will start to make financial sense in the not too distant future. New opportunities will begin to open up as more solar owners install batteries. Each of those batteries are little reservoirs of power, and if they all work together, they could become a virtual power plant.
Intrigued? Take a look at this video which uses the retro Sim City building game to show how this abstract concept, could actually work. It even looks at how electric vehicles are essentially batteries on wheels and how they could also play a role in this idea.
Definitely food for thought.
