If hydrogen can be used as a battery then it would not be a waste as the cost 
of solar comes down you have a use for excess capacity

Perhaps at some point. However, solar panels are still expensive and 
inefficient enough that it seems like a waste to convert their 
electricity to hydrogen. If I remember correctly, you'll loose 50% of 
the energy during that step versus maybe an 80% overall efficiency level 
for an EV.
