Which hybrid solar inverter do I need for my home and its energy needs? In this blog article, we aim to help you better understand exactly which hybrid inverter is best suited to your unique requirements.  

Hybrid delivers groundbreaking technology in your control that honours the best and worst-case scenarios. Summer, winter and even the current load-shedding dilemma in South Africa is a no-brainer to handle for these devices that balance your output to keep it stable whilst managing the energy stored in your solar batteries regardless of whether it is drawn from the panels or the national grid itself. 

These big boys light up the nation with the good news about their capabilities and offer better inverter options for people that need help understanding what a full-blown off-grid solar system (that sounds very romantic) would imply, financially and practically.      

In our previous article, we explored which solar inverter is best? With a 2023 refresh, this Blog closely examines what a hybrid solar inverter can do for your home’s power generation and why it’s so widely regarded to be in a class of its own.

The Function of a Hybrid Inverter during the Solar Process?

Imagine a hybrid solar inverter as the ultimate energy DJ at a renewable power party! It takes the bright, energetic beats from the sun and remixes them into usable electricity. When solar panels soak up the sun’s rays, they produce direct current (DC) power. But our DJ, the hybrid inverter, transforms that DC power into alternating current (AC) power, which we use for energy in our homes. It’s like converting the sun’s dance moves into a rhythm our electrical appliances can groove to.

We will always insist on a hybrid solar system solution when off-grid and on-grid solar debates flare up in the industry. So that answer can be taken off the bat. The same applies to SUNSYNK, our preferred hybrid inverters to source and install after we stress-tested all brands available to the max on your behalf. 

Broad advances in Cloud Computing have improved monitoring capabilities so that both of us, customer and supplier, can thus have real-time access to your system digitally, similar to how one would work with a Wi-Fi-enabled alarm or camera system.  

What is the Ideal Starter Inverter for a Small House?

With a 5kW hybrid solar inverter connected to a solar panel system, you can power essential appliances like refrigerators, lights, fans, computers, TVs, and charging stations for gadgets. On sunny days, the solar panels will generate enough electricity to meet most of your daytime energy needs. 

It’s a step up from the 3,5K standard inverters. Unfortunately, this system only powers essentials and will start screaming at you when you accidentally connect the vacuum cleaner to it.
