“How can a Supergrid help Grid Resiliency?”

 

Distributed Energy Resources have a problem. They tend to generate a large surplus of energy at midday when it is not needed, and a dearth at night when usage goes up. But some outside of the box thinking can fix this problem. We know that because the Earth revolves around its axis every day, different parts of the surface will be exposed to the sun at different times. So what if we were to take the surplus energy at the sunny parts and send it over to parts where the sun is absent using a Supergrid? In this way, A Supergrid can help Grid Stability.
