A hybrid system works by using solar PV power during the day – with excess power used to charge your batteries for later use at night. Because it is still connected to the grid the hybrid solar unit is able to use the grid as a backup if the battery is discharged because of extended bad weather.

Available Solar Systems
The most common type of solar system installed in Australia are grid connected solar systems. A 5kW solar system may produce enough energy to power your home, however If you can afford the upfront cost and have the roof space, we recommend selecting a system size greater than 5kW. Modern Solar system usually have multiple banks of solar panels which are arranged to face towards the sun in both the morning and the afternoon. This ensures a greater amount of solar energy collection throughout the day where as older single bank systems only performed well at one time of the day. Listed below are the more common types of Solar Systems installed by CMH Electrical:
Grid Connected Solar
The majority of Solar Systems are grid connected. The grid connected solar system consists of solar panels and a solar inverter. Energy derived from the solar system is used in preference to energy from the grid and any surplus energy generated is fed back into the grid. This type of solar system will not operate during a power outage.
Hybrid Solar System
Hybrid Solar systems offer the benefit of having a grid connected Solar System coupled with battery back up. Energy derived from the solar system is used in preference to energy from the batteries. Any surplus solar energy is used to recharge batteries before being offered back into the grid. Typically the batteries will last several days but the system can draw energy from the grid as a last resort. A hybrid solar system will operate during a power outage.
Off Grid Solar
Off Grid Solar Systems are stand alone power solutions suitable for situations where connection to the grid is not an option. Off grid Solar systems typically consist of solar panels, solar inverter, battery charger, and optional standby generator. Battery choice plays a big role in determining the capabilities of any off grid solar system
