Hybrid Solar Power Systems

In short, a hybrid system is an on-grid system with batteries.  What this means is that the panels produce power during day light hours, provide the home with this power and any excess power not used in the home at that moment in time is then stored in batteries rather than exported to the grid.  Only when the batteries are fully charged will any excess power be exported to the grid.

The batteries provide power during night time and generally only to select few electrical circuits within your home.

There are two many distinctions in a hybrid system.  One is the installation of a hybrid inverter, meaning an inverter that converts the power from the panels to usable AC power for the home as well as regulates and monitors the battery side of the system.  This is often a more economical solution and has some restrictions on the different available settings within the inverter.  Still works very efficiently and certainly reduces any power bills.

The other distinction is the installation of two inverters.  One inverter is for the panel operation and the second inverter is for the battery control.  With this second inverter many more setting options are available and can be adjusted to suit individual requirements.

When it comes to the batteries, TFA Solar has been working with different battery types and makes and can provide batteries to suit individual situations.

During the initial consultation we work out with you what part of your bill you wish to cover with solar/batteries.  This can be from just a little to just about all, depending of your budget.
