How do you store excess energy?
So I was thinking... Do boaters who generate power from renewables like wind, towed hydro, solar etc... have systems on board to store excess generated energy?
You're in the Caribbean and a couple of hours sunlight in the morning has topped up your batteries from overnight use.
What do you do with the rest of the days energy?
Do you have a small electric water maker to use the excess solar to top off your fresh water tanks?
A small electric ice maker?
Can these systems be designed in to automatically come on once the batteries are topped off?
Hear me ROAR
