Everyone has the power to transform electricity and reduce costs, carbon and outages by shifting when we use non-time-sensitive appliances from the 3-8pm peak to the midnight-7am trough - shift your dishwashers, washing machines, tumble driers and immersion heaters.
Solve the energy trilemma now!

Where is Storage Needed?
Is electricity storage a good idea? Where is it needed?
In the countryside, where the solar and wind power are generated?
Or in towns and cities, where most of the electricity is consumed?
Peak demand is an issue in the cities, but handling PV on a sunny day is a rural issue - so we probably will need both - but the more we shift our demand, the less expensive storage we will need - happy time-shifting!
