Hybrid/Off-grid Systems

What is a Hybrid System?


With the recent advancements in innovative solar technology has come the concept of the hybrid system: allowing you to effectively become your own power source. Hybrid systems incorporate varying degrees of battery storage, which are designed to harness the power generated from your PV solar panels for when additional energy is required, or when the grid goes down.


Solar Merchants’ energy storage solutions can provide you with this incredible luxury and convenience on a cost­-effective basis, and can have you determining your own energy usage as quickly as possible. Our systems are fully automated, utilise the latest, cutting edge technology available on the market today, and can even be used in conjunction with other energy generating units.

What are the Benefits of a Hybrid System?


The idea behind the concept of a hybrid solar and mains grid utility is to provide you with increased power, whilst also being able to monitor how the energy is used throughout your home remotely. Whilst this is a good enough reason to invest in your very own hybrid solution, these storage units have a whole host of other, fantastic benefits, of which are:


  • Reliability should the mains grid ever experience a brownout or a blackout.

  • A completely self­-sustainable, automated system which can power key areas and appliances of your home.

  • Very little maintenance due to no moving parts.

  • An easy to understand monitoring system.

  • A reduction in the carbon footprint of your home or business.

Best of all, these units are relatively compact in size, and can be placed anywhere on the property, without compromising the integrity or the capacity of the storage unit.
