Talking Solar Batteries With BBC Click


A few weeks ago, I had a delightful chat with the BBC about our solar battery storage.

You can watch it on iPlayer starting about 7m 30s in.

Community battery technology is here. It is feasible. And it just works. The solar panels on our roof generate more power than we can use - so we store it and share the rest. Yes, even in rainy England, solar panels work!

Storage is expensive now - but it won't be long before it is as common as loft insulation or energy efficient light-bulbs.

It's always fascinating to see the hard work that goes in to making 30 seconds of TV. Impressively, the BBC crew was the presenter and a single camera operator who also did lights and sound. Different from the old days when it seemed like it took a dozen people to film a segment.
