What kind of "got ya" moment is this? Batteries require fuckton of rare resources (at least chemical one like li-ion, slightly different with those liquid salt ones etc. but they have yet to scale up in production). You can deploy them on some scale (single houses, smaller towns) but it's unrealistic to think it's a solution viable at nation or global scal.

lithium is not rare numbskull and they are already being deployed at scale. Most people that get home solar already get batteries to go with it. It's part of the package. and nobody said that the batteries had to be lithium.

do you know what is a limited resource? gas

batteries mean strip-mining the earth and/or dredging the ocean floor.

There is no easy way out.
