Residential Hybrid Solar Systems combine the best from Grid-Tied and Off-Grid solar systems. These systems can also be described as Grid-Tied solar with battery storage.
Benefits of Residential Hybrid Solar System.
1. Maximise Solar Energy Use
Any solar energy you don’t use during the day is stored for later use.
2. Solar Power Day and Night
Solar Energy can be used during peak nighttime power rates, increasing your savings potential. Now you don’t have to be home during the day to enjoy the benefits of solar power.
3. Less Expensive than Off-Grid
Because you can draw on Grid-Power when needed, you don’t need a backup generator, and the capacity of your battery bank can be downsized. Off-peak electricity from the utility company is cheaper and cleaner than diesel.
4. Capitalise on the Smart Network
Fill the Battery when power rates are low, draw on the battery when power rates are high. And in the future sell your excess power back to the Grid at a premium when demand is high.

Why Choose A Hybrid System rather than Grid-Tied?
With a Hybrid Solar System, you can use solar energy day and night. You can also programme your battery to recharge during the cheap off-peak power, which enables you to maximise solar use and energy savings.
How much money can I save with a Hybrid System?
That depends on how much electricity your home uses, where you live, your combination of day & night time energy use, the rate your electricity company charges – both fixed and variable and several other factors. If you are home during the day, you can expect to reduce your monthly electricity bill, by at least 50%
Will a Hybrid System ensure I have power during a Black-out?
Yes, you will still be able to run a few critical appliances or devices, from the energy stored in your battery. However, as a safety feature, the solar system will not be feeding additional energy into your home, or onto the grid.
Does roof orientation matter?
Yes. A system with solar panels facing in a southerly direction will generate far less than one with a northerly aspect. However, east/west installations can be a good option depending on the installation scenario. We can look at your property and provide evidence-backed figures of generation and potential savings.
