many of us know that solar and wind power is slowly becoming more mainstream, but many don't realize what the major hurdle has been, the battery bank. Currently the outdated technology of lead acid batteries still are the most used. But there is hope on the horizon, batteries that can last 10 years with full cycling daily (cycle = charge and disharge), safe for large scale home usage, and cost effective.

im also curious as to where NiMH technology will suddenly jump to when these hit the market, as chevron (owner of the patent) has been holding back the technology, and preventing many manufacturers from using the NiMH technology.
