Is pumped storage necessary for storing solar power?

No. Solar power is an intermittent source depending on weather and time of day, but the times when sunlight is available coincide with peak daytime energy demand. So, when solar is available it can be fully utilized by the power grid to offload other energy generators. There is no return to storing solar energy especially considering the high cost of pumped storage.
