Interesting idea: Use electric schoolbuses as grid storage. Charge them overnight, use them in the morning, top off for the afternoon run, and then send power back to the grid during the late afternoon and early evening -- the peak hours when usage is highest and solar is dropping off for the day.

@KelsonV For some reason, I thought for a moment that it said "electric toothbrushes."

@mansr 😄😄 that sounds far less effective! 😄😄
