How Does The Hybrid Inverter Work?

The Hybrid inverter gives you the best of both worlds, not only does it act like a Grid-Tied inverter, but it also gives you the freedom of an Off-Grid inverter.

Often when wanting to go solar we think of  “Off-Grid” and independence, but what if you can do that and fall back to the grid if for a period or even a moment you needed extra power? Then a Hybrid inverter is an ideal solution, you can have your cake and eat it too, plus it’s cheaper!


As you can see you can use this inverter as a UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) for when the grid goes down, or you can use it as a Solar solution and you can use the backup system for night time use. Perfect for those looking to start with a backup in order to deal with Load Shedding, then upgrade to a Solar solution later by adding panels.

 If you’re looking for an automated solution that you will never need to manually intervene with, this is your perfect power companion.
