Hybrid Solar Power Systems

Generate solar energy during the day and store excess energy in your battery storage system for use at night.


Hybrid Solar Power System

As the stability of the national electricity grid starts to fluctuate the value of a hybrid solar system is fast becoming a popular and innovative way of ensuring a steady stream of household energy. 

While solar panels are still a great investment, they can only do so much to reduce your electricity bill. By installing a hybrid solar system you can maximise the savings you see from your solar system and reduce your reliance on the grid.

A hybrid solar system is the best way to get the most out of your solar panels. Our systems are designed to work with your existing solar panels to provide maximum savings and, importantly, grid independence

What is a Hybrid Solar System

If you have a rooftop solar panel system installed with a solar inverter (or hybrid solar inverter) and battery storage unit AND your solar system is connected and communicating with the utility grid then you have a hybrid solar system.

Hybrid solar systems are now an affordable and economical option to maximise returns from your solar system and reduce household and business electricity bills – often to zero.  If a hybrid solar system is sized correctly it can provide grid independence. 

Why install a Hybrid Solar System?

 As more and more rooftop solar systems are being installed in Australia hybrid solar systems will become integral to maintain the utility grid viability by storing excess solar energy in battery storage for usage at night.

Professionally engineered hybrid solar systems designed and installed by Spinifex Energy can provide low cost electricity 24/7 for years to come.  

Hybrid solar systems can provide energy consumers with:

1. Battery storage for total utility grid independence.

2. Full emergency backup for providing energy during a power outage.

3. Peak Shaving features to further reduce household and business electricity by providing energy at peak usage times when electricity rates are predictably higher than other times of the day.




We Collect the Data

We capture your daily energy usage patterns and load profiles and feed the data into our specialised software and tools

We Design Your System

Then, we combine the recommendations from our technology systems with the knowledge gained over 10 years on the roofs of homes around Brisbane and the rest of Queensland to accurately model solar power system designs that will deliver savings over time

You Enjoy the Results

Once a design is agreed upon, we carefully manage the entire process from purchase to grid connection to switching things on, and are happy to partner with other trades to ensure a seamless project.

How does a hybrid solar system work?

A hybrid solar system is a solar panel system that is connected to the grid and includes solar panels, a hybrid inverter, and battery storage. When the sun is shining the solar panels generate electricity and power the home as well as fill the battery storage with solar energy. When the sun is not shining the home will rely on grid power and / or electricity from the battery. This is because hybrid solar systems are designed to supplement, not replace, grid power. Hybrid solar systems are a great option for homeowners who want to reduce their reliance on grid power but do not want to completely eliminate it. These systems are also less expensive than traditional solar panel systems, making them a more affordable option for many homeowners.

Do I need a hybrid solar system for my home?

A hybrid solar system is a great way to save money on your energy bills. With a hybrid system, you can use the power of the sun to heat your home during the day and then switch to using traditional energy sources at night. This can help you to save money on your energy bills, as well as provide you with a more reliable source of power. In addition, a hybrid system can also help to reduce your carbon footprint. If you are interested in reducing your energy costs and your carbon footprint, then a hybrid solar system may be the right choice for you.

What are the advantages of hybrid systems with solar battery charging?

Solar battery systems are becoming increasingly popular as hybrid systems that can take advantage of both solar and grid power. There are a number of advantages to hybrid systems with solar battery storage. First, hybrid systems can offer backup electricity during a power failure.  Second, hybrid systems can be designed to completely eliminate electricity bills depending on the size of the system. Finally, hybrid systems are more environmentally friendly than traditional grid-tied systems, because they use renewable solar energy instead of fossil fuels. Hybrid solar systems are a great way to take advantage of solar power and save money on your electric bill.

Hybrid Solar System Maintenance Requirements

Hybrid solar systems are becoming increasingly popular as a way to generate power. However, these systems require regular/annual maintenance in order to function properly. The most important part of hybrid solar system maintenance is ensuring that the batteries are fully charged regularly – this is why correctly sizing a hybrid solar system is important.  In addition, the solar panels must be regularly cleaned in order to ensure that they are able to absorb as much sunlight as possible. Regular hybrid solar system maintenance will help to ensure that the system continues to run efficiently and effectively.

What is the difference between an off grid and hybrid solar system?

Hybrid solar systems are similar to off-grid systems in that they are made up of solar panels, inverters, and battery storage modules.  . There are some key differences between the two types of systems. Off-grid solar systems are typically used in conjunction with backup generators, making them ideal for businesses or homes that require a reliable source of power but don’t have access to the grid(or it is cost prohibitive to do so). In contrast, hybrid solar systems are designed to be used without backup generators. T. Another key difference between hybrid and off-grid solar systems is that hybrid systems can be switched on and off, while off-grid systems must be left on all the time. This makes hybrid solar systems more flexible and efficient.

How long does a Hybrid Solar System last?

Hybrid solar systems are designed to provide a long-term, reliable source of power. The average lifespan of a hybrid solar system is 10 years (which is the estimated life of a lithium battery module). However, the exact lifespan will depend on the quality of the components and the conditions under which the system is operated. With proper maintenance, a hybrid solar system can last for decades. In fact, many systems installed in the early days of solar power are still in operation today. Hybrid solar systems offer a cost-effective, environmentally friendly solution for powering homes and businesses. When properly maintained, they can provide decades of reliable service.
