What is Hybrid Solar?
A hybrid solar power system is combination of ON grid solar system and OFF grid solar system. It has battery backup in it to store power and it also have the ability to feed surplus electricity into main grid.
It means that even during a power-cut, your system will work and you still have electricity. The same energy can be used in the evening or night instead of buying from government grid at a higher price.
How does it work?
Hybrid solar systems generate power in the same way as the common grid-tie solar system but the main difference is that they use batteries to store energy for later use. It is because of the ability to use stored energy most hybrid system to operate as backup power. They used this energy during a blackout which is similar to a UPS system.
“Hybrid solar systems enable you to store solar energy and use it when you're home during the evening when the cost of electricity is typically at the peak rate”.
Benefits of Hybrid Solar:
Hybrid system is fully automatic, programmable and custom engineer system. Which provides a smart hybrid combination of all energy sources to you.
They allow using of solar energy during the peak times.
In this power available during a blackout or grid outage like a UPS function.
Solar hybrid enables the advanced management of energy.
It also enables energy independence.
It reduces the power consumption from the grid.
Why Store Solar Energy in a Battery?
Many network operators and governments have reduced the solar feed-in tariff received for feeding solar energy to the grid. This means traditional grid feed solar systems have less attractive. Most people are working during the day in which they use solar energy which is generated. Therefore, solar energy is fed into the grid for very little return.
