Re: Sorry but how

A lot of the power in SA is generated by green sources. I.e wind and solar. And they only operate at certain times. When they're not generating, you get nothing. When they are generating, you get more then you need for the network. Batteries allow you to save the excess from when they are generating too much, to use when they are not generating enough.

I hope that helps your understanding.
