Some key advantages of Hybrid solar systems supplied and installed by Specialized Solar Systems:

  • If the power generated by PV solar arrays is inadequate to supply daytime loads as well as charge your batteries, the system can recharge your batteries from the grid when generally a lower off-peak electricity rate is applied.
  • When electricity usage goes above a certain level nationally, the grid supply may charge you at a higher rate for the increased level of demand. Hybrid systems can provide ‘peak lopping’ where some of the stored power can be drawn from the batteries to help balance power usage.
  •  If your grid connection does not have the capacity to supply a required load,  a hybrid solar system will supplement any extra power. This may allow you to avoid a costly mains upgrade to your property.

Hybrid solar systems empower you with energy security, self-sufficiency, and lock in your future cost of electricity, control when you use your solar power and provide an uninterrupted power supply.

The utility grid is a virtual battery
Electricity should be used as it is generated. However, it can be temporarily stored as other forms of energy (e.g. chemical energy in batteries).  Energy storage typically comes with significant costs.

The electric power grid is in many ways also a battery, without the need for maintenance or replacements, and with much better efficiency rates. In other words, more electricity (and more money) goes to waste with conventional battery systems.

Additional perks of being grid-tied include access to backup power from the utility grid in case extra power is required or if your solar system stops generating electricity for any reason.  At the same time, you also help to mitigate the utility’s peak load.

Customers can contact Specialized Solar Systems for more information on purchasing a Grid-Tied solar system and for expert advice when choosing the correct solar system solution for all your electrical energy needs.

I used the Gauteng supplier, Approved Solar Systems, and I truly appreciate the professionalism showed by the team. They consulted on my needs and answered all of my questions. The turn around was really fast. Most importantly they were warm and friendly to deal with. The positive experience was worth every penny. Thanks for an amazing service...it's a lost art these days.

I was very satisfied with the professionalism and quality of the service provided by SSS at my home in Welgelegen George, installing a solar system.To put the cherry on top, I was informed by SSS about 2 weeks after the job was finished and paid for, that I have overpaid them by R32000 and that they would refund me! I was not aware of this and they could have kept quiet and I would never have known. This reflects great business ethics and I can really recommend these guys!

I've been investigating a solar solution for our house in Randburg for the past 5 years. From all the interaction I had with various companies SSS is by far the most professional. They are the only company that was willing to do a decent study of our power usage before making a recommendation of what is needed. The level of service I received was world class. The CEO was actually interacting with me directly via phone and e-mail and explaining everything in a way I can understand. Thank you for time Jonathan! You and your team really showed what service is all about. The installation is very neat and I can already see a huge reduction in my grid consumption. No need to stress about load shedding anymore.

I like when people know their stuff and are not too wrapped up in their expertise to spend time with those who are not so knowledgeable to explain things. I had a good experience and liked the calm confidence the staff projects.
