HYBRID SOLAR SYSTEMS

Hybrid solar systems generate power in the same way as a common grid-tie solar system but use batteries to store energy for later use. This ability to store energy enables most hybrid systems to also operate as a backup power supply during a blackout, similar to a UPS system. Traditionally the term hybrid referred to two generation sources such as wind and solar but more recently the term 'hybrid solar' refers to a combination of solar and battery storage which unlike off-grid systems is connected to the electricity grid.

Solar Hybrid Advantages
Typical hybrid solar systems are based on the following additional components:

* • Stores solar or low cost (off-peak) electricity.
• Allows use of solar energy during peak times (self-use or load-shifting)
• Power available during a grid outage or blackout – UPS function
• Enables advanced energy management (i.e. peak shaving)
• Enables energy independence
• Reduces power consumption from the grid (reduced demand)

Equipment for Hybrid Solar Systems Typical hybrid solar systems are based on the following additional components:
• Charge Controller
• Battery Bank
• DC Disconnect (additional)
• Battery-Based Grid-Tie Inverter
• Power Meter

Extras charges for all solar installations • Three phase inverter
• Meter upgrade
• Double story install • Battery ready inverters
• Batteries
• Installation in non-metro areas.
