Solar Hybrid: On Grid Inverters with Battery Backup

Image of SP PRO grid interactive inverter charger

A solar hybrid system allow you to take control of your power by adding battery storage to your solar power while still remaining connected to the electricity grid.

A solar hybrid system is made up of the following components:

  1. Solar Panels
  2. AC grid tie inverter or a DC charge controller
  3. Multi-mode inverter charger (an SP PRO or SP PRO GO)
  4. Battery bank


Security of Backup Power

During a power outage, the SP PRO solar hybrid systems will supply the load from the renewable energy source while storing any excess energy in the battery bank to be used as needed. This gives the user continuous power and peace of mind.


Self consumption

An SP PRO solar hybrid system gives you back control of your electricity bill. By appropriately balancing grid power with the available renewable energy and stored battery energy, the SP PRO minimises your electricity bill. With an SP PRO solar hybrid system you decide how much you pay for your power, not the utility.

Maximise Net Feed-In-Tariffs

The SP PRO Solar Hybrid function allows the user to feed virtually all of their renewable energy back into the grid to maximise their net feed in tariff.  The SP PRO minimises the solar power consumed by the user by shifting the user’s day time consumption to a time of low tariff.


SP PRO Inverter Series

The SP PRO grid feed inverter offers the ability to store energy in and use energy from a battery storage system. Whether you wish to install a new solar hybrid system or update your existing renewable energy system to Solar Hybrid, the SP PRO provides the solution.

Being compatible with most forms of renewable energy including DC and AC coupled PV Solar, micro hydro and wind, the SP PRO can be incorporated into virtually any grid tie system.


Fixed Export Limit with SP PRO Series II

It is now possible to install all the solar power you want and still comply with the Utility imposed grid export limit.

The Fixed Export Limit (or Grid Feed-In Power Rating) in your SP PRO GO inverter will give the Utility assurance that your battery based solar power system will never export more to the grid than your allowable power. This is regardless of the size of the SP PRO GO inverter, the configuration settings within the SP PRO GO inverter or the amount of Managed AC coupled PV solar or DC coupled solar.

Please specify the value of the Fixed Export Limit at time of order.
