A hybrid solar system consists of solar panels system, solar inverter, and solar storage battery system. I will recommend you the solar hybrid inverter——Loxpower hybrid inverter, which main task is to convert DC current into AC current and convert AC current into DC current, according to demands. Lux power hybrid inverters are designed for solar energy storage solar systems, which can be capable to install in on-grid solar, off-grid solar, and backup systems.
What is a hybrid solar system?
A hybrid solar system is based on the on-grid system to add a battery system to store energy similar to a backup system. Hybrid solar systems combine the best between on-grid and off-grid solar systems.
How does a hybrid solar system work?
First solar panels use the photovoltaic effect and convert solar power or solar energy into DC power in the daytime. Then the DC power is directly stored in the battery bank or battery system. And the excess energy is converted into AC power by the solar hybrid inverter to home appliances even feedback to the grid. At night, there is no sunlight and when the grid electricity supply is not available during the peak period, the batteries DC power is converted by a solar inverter into AC power to support household electricity.
Hybrid solar system: advantages and disadvantages
It is very suitable for domestic customers that a solar hybrid system enables a programable and schedulable smart solar energy storage system to help increase your solar energy self-consumption rate, protect your home appliances from grid shortage and balance your energy usage strategy to save energy bills.
There is a table about the advantages and disadvantages of hybrid solar systems.
|Storing excess solar or low-cost electricity
|Higher cost of batteries than grid-solar
|Releasing energy stored by the battery at
peak times in the evening
|Higher install cost for complex installation
|UPS function for backup power system or
|Backup power for important loads
|Reducing power consumption from the grid
|Payback time so longer
|Advanced energy management
|Limited battery life of 7-15 years

Maybe you’re already wondering how high the price of such a good solar inverter must be. In fact, Hybrid systems are also at least half the price of an off-grid system because of no need for a diesel generator.
