We may be facing one of the worst economic downturns in American history, but it hasn’t stopped the surge in battery storage development.

Small-scale batteries are being attached to more than one-third of residential solar systems for leading installers, making distributed batteries a staple of home energy offerings. New markets like Texas are heating up. And utilities are putting batteries front-and-center in their 100% clean energy plans.
