We’ll store all the solutions on a folder and then they will be added automatically to your SharePoint. Make sure that you have the folder path on the $path variable and end with \* so the PowerShell can select all the files on the folder.  

$loginUrl   = ""
$path       = "C:\Users\contoso\Documents\BackupApps\*"

Connect-PnPOnline $loginUrl -UseWebLogin
$apps = Get-Item $path 
$ReadHost = Read-Host "Do you want to install the solution at the Tenant App Catalog(yes) or Site App Catalog(no)?"
if($ReadHost -match 'y'){
 $value = "Tenant"
 $value = "Site"

foreach($app in $apps){
  Write-Host "Installing file" $app.Name -NoNewline
  #It'll overwrite any file with the same id and make the solution available globally
  Add-PnPApp -Path $app.FullName -Scope $value -SkipFeatureDeployment -Overwrite -Publish | Out-Null
  Write-Host " Done" -BackgroundColor Green -ForegroundColor Black
