A common question we always encounter for people who have just recently decided to go solar is: Will the solar work during brownouts?

Technically, yes it can – when you integrate batteries into your solar setup. Solaric can also step further ahead and give you the combination of both worlds, which is also becoming a popular choice recently with our clients: The hybrid solar system.

What is a hybrid solar power system?

What is a hybrid solar power system?

A hybrid solar power system is basically a combination of a grid tie and off-grid solar setup. This type of system can provide you power during the night and during power outages. Typically, Solaric does not recommend hybrid setups in Metro Manila where grid is relatively stable. The typical hybrid solar setup is usually recommended for power-starved areas, or places where the grid is unreliable and power is intermittent. However, due to the recent issues of constant brownouts caused by insufficient supply of electricity to the grid, the pandemic, and natural disasters, we have seen an increase in interest and awareness for battery-integrated setups like the Solaric hybrid system.

Energy independence

Hybrid setups allows users to have complete control and flexibility on their consumption with the energy harvested by the solar. It allows you to store power in the batteries for later use instead of immediately selling it back to the grid, which also makes sense given that the utility company only credits you less than half of the cost of the electricity you buy from them.

Hybrid setups continue to grow at a rapid pace especially with a lot of people considering the importance of preparedness and wanting the reliability and assurance of solar power systems with batteries, or energy storage systems, especially during grid outages and natural calamities. Solaric offers lithium-ion batteries and uses the Alpha ESS SMILE5. Improvements in technology has also made lithium batteries cheaper compared to 2012, thus making hybrid systems more affordable and cost-competitive.
