If the cheapest option is $700 per kWh, then supplemental power from battery storage might be economically viable now. Tesla claims a cost of $190 per kWh of battery capacity. You could get 3.5 hours of battery runtime for that $700.
Grid scale battery storage is starting to gain traction, still some fear around longevity and maintenance costs though.
