While solar + batteries would be good backup options, they would do 
little to support electric-driven heating, as solar irradiation during 
winter is too low already, and zapping your batteries on resistive loads 
will surely kill them young.

Li-Ion storage is by no means perfect, but it's the most perfect we 
have, today.
