SOLAR HYBRID SYSTEMS
DESIGN & INSTALLATION
Reduce your power bills even further! A solar hybrid system is a battery designed to store clean energy (FREE from the sun). You can use this stored energy anytime you need – during the day, at night, or during an outage. Some hybrid systems can also be designed to detect grid outages and automatically become your home's main energy source. Protect your home from the next power outage and keep your lights on, phones charged and no puddles under the fridge.
ALL BRISBANE ELECTRICAL is qualified in supplying and installing solar hybrid systems with retro fit battery storage to existing solar PV systems along with integrating battery storage into new systems.
What ever your renewable energy needs, ALL BRISBANE ELECTRICAL has the experience and the capabilities to provide the 'right' solution for you.
What are solar hybrid systems?
Solar hybrid systems work similar to grid solar systems but use batteries for energy storage. The capacity for energy storage enables hybrid systems to supply backup power during a blackout. This is similar to how an Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) system works. These systems are still connected to the electricity grid.
What are the benefits of using hybrid solar systems?
They can store solar energy and produce affordable electricity
These enable you to be energy-independent
Solar energy can be used during peak times
They decrease energy consumption from the grid
What are the disadvantages of using hybrid solar systems?
These cost higher than grid-solar
The lifespan of the battery is from 7 to 15 years only
There are limitations with the number of appliances that can operate simultaneously
How much do hybrid solar systems cost?
The factors that affect the cost include your power needs, home size, and hybrid type. The average cost for a total system ranges from $20,000 to $80,000.
What batteries can be used for a hybrid solar system?
There are different kinds of batteries available for residential locations. These include PylonTech, Q Cells, Opal Storage, and Huawei Luna, to name some. Most battery manufacturers only provide 10 years full warranty for their products.
Can I install DIY hybrid solar installations by myself?
The answer is yes. You can perform a DIY solar panel installation by yourself. However, installing it may expose you to potential dangers as these involve high voltage electricity. There are specific details in the law that require licensed installers to carry out the work.
