Technologies that leverage solar energy to produce electricity are an affordable and reliable source of electricity. However, electricity production is limited to when the sun is shining. There continues to be a growing trend across the solar industry to develop solar plus storage systems in order to use the energy generated by the solar panels either when the sun is not shining (at night) or when the power goes out from a natural disaster, weather event, or other disruption.

A solar plus storage system is a battery system that is charged by a connected solar system, such as a photovoltaic (PV) one.
