I have a project in which I design a house that runs completely on renewable energy sources. When I put in solar energy, the batteries are said to use the sun's light and store the energy for later use. My question is if those batteries have some kind of fossil fuels in them or would use fossil fuels?

  2. But I thought that batteries and power inverters would be different.
