Re: Interesting idea

Yup I think there's a huge potential in local generation and small scale storage too.

But one big issue with the EV charging idea; you're at work during the day when your solar generates excess power - which means, your EV isn't at your home and can't charge on "free" electrons. Once the sunlight is gone, you come home and plug your EV in...

How do you solve that?
