THE HYBRID SYSTEM

THE HYBRID SYSTEM

Though it does require additional investment in the form of batteries, it is very possible to get the best of both worlds by building a solar system that only uses traditional utility power as a back-up. In this scenario, rather than funnelling your excess solar energy back into a power grid, you store it yourself. If you plan well and create enough storage, you can put yourself in a position of only using the power grid for cases of extreme energy use or very limited sunlight availability.
