How is Solar Energy Stored?

Question asked by Roddick in #Coffee Room on Jul 23, 2009

One of the drawbacks of solar energy systems is that the Sun doesn't provide a constant stream of energy. On cloudy days or at night, the amount of energy your system receives is reduced or eliminated altogether. This in turn impacts the amount of electricity or heat that your system produces during those times.

To overcome this drawback, homeowners can take advantage of several methods available to them for storing solar energy. The methods available differ depending on whether you are using solar electricity applications or solar heating applications.

For solar electricity, it is stored using either batteries or the grid.
For solar heating, it is stored using thermal mass, water tanks, or swimming pool water.
