Sometimes people forget what the push for renewables, including energy storage is really about. It’s about making the world a more equitable place for all, humans, plants and animals alike rather than just making it an easy way for some people to make money.

When contemplating battery energy storage people should really be looking on it as a way to protect the earth for their children by limiting the use of fossil fuels in order to protect the environment.
