Hybrid Solar System


Hybrid solar systems have their own special inverters which run with batteries. Basically, they generate solar power in the same way that grid-tied systems do, except they are able to store energy in solar batteries for later use. Considering they use batteries as backup, they are able to operate through those long Eskom blackouts. Depending on the size of the battery bank.




Hybrid Inverters Cape Town


Hybrid inverters can simultaneously manage inputs from both solar panels and a battery bank. Charging batteries with either solar panels or the electricity grid (depending on which is more economical or preferred).

While hybrid inverters are designed to incorporate storage, you can install this technology without batteries. In fact, many people choose to install a hybrid inverter pre-emptively in anticipation of adding batteries to their system in the future.

Traditionally the term “hybrid” referred to two generation sources such as wind and solar, but in the solar world, the term refers to a system that uses a combination of solar and batteries that can interact with the electricity grid.


Benefits of Hybrid Inverters


Hybrid solar systems can be called the best of both worlds. One configuration of this system requires you to have a disconnect switch which you could toggle on or off depending upon your electricity requirements. Usually, this is an automatic switch. Here are some of the advantages of a hybrid solar system in Cape Town:


  1. You’ll use less grid electricity than you would with a traditional grid-tied system. While hybrid setups are grid-tied, they come with battery storage, which means you can maximize the consumption of the power generated from the panels.
  2. A hybrid system is possibly the most expandable, future-ready home solar setup. With some customizable hybrid systems, you can expand your capacity by buying more panels or batteries. Hybrid systems may also be compatible with newer solar technologies
  3. For even lower costs, you can use a power management system. These technologies can automatically optimize your power usage. (For example, larger appliances like dishwashers can be switched on during peak daylight hours.) The result: bigger utility savings and a quicker ROI.

There are many advantages to running a hybrid system over a grid-tied or off-grid system. With a hybrid setup, the solar battery is used as a backup in the event the grid goes down.

Hybrids are available for Grid-Tied  and Off-Grid systems. That is , you get an “Grid-Tied hybrid” as well as an “Off-Grid hybrid” inverter.

  • Store excess solar
  • Backup power capability
  • Reduces grid power consumption
  • Advanced energy management
  • Reduces reliance on Eskom
