A hybrid solar system combines the best of both worlds: the convenience of a grid connected system — including the ability to earn tariff credits if supported in your area and battery backup system which will supply power in the event of a blackout or during load shedding.
Combining energy storage with a grid connection to your property, hybrid systems can provide the flexibility of being able to store the energy you generate during the day instead of feeding it back into the grid – typically at a low feed-in tariff. This energy can then be used in the evening instead of buying power back at a higher price.
Hybrid systems are quite sophisticated. They are fully programmable and our in-house designers can custom engineer a system which will provide a smart combination of all the energy sources available to you, giving you a strategic advantage in the reliability, cost and environmental impact of electricity usage.
