With the increasing demand for clean energy, solar energy has emerged as a leading player in the renewable energy industry. However, solar energy systems can only generate electricity during daytime hours. This is where a hybrid solar inverter comes in. It is a device that combines the functions of a solar inverter and a battery energy storage system. It is an innovative solution to store solar power and meet energy demands around the clock. In this blog, we will discuss everything you need to know about hybrid solar inverters, their types, their working principle, and their benefits.

Types of Hybrid Solar Inverters

There are two types of hybrid solar inverters: DC-coupled inverters and AC-coupled inverters. DC-coupled inverters are used with a battery storage system and have a higher efficiency rate. They are connected to a solar panel and a battery, which is charged during the day through solar panels. AC-coupled inverters, on the other hand, are connected to the utility grid and solar panels. The installation process is easy and you can add a battery system later if needed.

Working Principle

A hybrid solar inverter enables you to store solar energy in a battery and use it later. During the day, the solar panels generate electricity, which is then converted by the inverter into usable energy. Any excess generated power is stored in the battery for later use. When the solar panels are not generating electricity, the inverter automatically switches to battery power. If the battery needs to be charged and there is insufficient solar energy available, the inverter automatically switches to grid power. In this way, a hybrid solar inverter ensures that energy is always available, even during power outages.

Benefits of Hybrid Solar Inverters

Hybrid solar inverters provide several benefits. They can save users a considerable amount of money on their electricity bills, as they allow you to use generated energy before purchasing electricity from the grid. Moreover, they provide energy independence, which means that you have control over your electricity supply. Hybrid solar inverters are also eco-friendly, as they reduce the dependency on fossil fuels and decrease greenhouse gas emissions. Lastly, they can increase the value of your home, as they are an attractive feature for potential buyers.
