Storage: Energy day and night.
Storage: Energy day and night
The heat can be stored in concrete for nearly a day. This means that you can even get energy out of the Microgrid when it is already dark easily. This wouldn't be possible with conventional photovoltaic cells without expensive and short-lived battery solutions.
The storage scales automatically with the size of your system. The storage module is a cylinder of concrete insulated by an outer cylinder of fiberglass. It's size always matches solar collection regardless of how long the collector strings actually are: The length of the cylinder is the same as the length of the collector string.
