Re: How do you store excess energy?

I suppose that a better way of thinking would be, do people plan excess generating capacity as part of their on board systems? If i was calculating my consumption to generation ratios, i think I would install enough capacity to generate twice my consumption if my generators were running at 100%. That way I would still be comfortable if my generators only produced 50%of their max daily capacity.

I suppose the problem becomes a technical one where you have a how to use unstable voltages and average without the need for a moderator like a battery. I can't imagine that a fridge will run if it can't draw the amps it needs when it needs it......
