Solar panels and storage heaters

I'm hopefully having solar panels fitted shortly. It occurs to me if I put a small storage heater in the conservatory, it would charge during the day and release the heat on a winters evening.

Is this practical?

..all depends...in Glasgow...no, but in sunnier climes, it could be feesable.

I like constructive criticism, dagbladet. I might name my first working model after you :o)

The future is in Lunar power, once a month you'll easily have enough surplus power to run the fridge light.

There used to be a 'Daylight Tax' or 'Window Tax' in Scotland, back in the 18th century. It's heading that way again.
