Those interested in solar power often look to being completely removed from the grid. However, remaining connected to the grid and investing in a battery backup system will provide more benefits.
When you’re connected to the grid, you can count on it for backup power in the event that your solar battery runs out of power. You can also sell extra electricity back to your electricity retailer. There are also private power agreements available which allow you to sell generated power at negotiated rates.
A hybrid solar system works by sending solar power to your inverter, which then sends energy to power your home. Unused energy goes to your home battery for storage.
This battery can provide power to your home when your solar panels are not producing energy. If there is still leftover energy, that energy is sent to the grid.
