Installing a hybrid battery system is an optional source of backup energy that is used to reduce your energy bills for your night time consumption and it also comes in handy if you have constant power outages.
It is very important to note that a hybrid battery system is very different from a traditional off grid system. Some hybrid system are designed to only cover a certain amount of loads and are usually wired into a nominated circuit in your meter box.
The Tesla Powerwall 2 is more flexible and is able to cover loads with a surge rating of 7kW.
I is very important to work with a company that has knowledge in offgrid and can help you understand the limitations for hybrid system.
At Mega Watt Power, we’re proud to be a certified installer of the Tesla solar battery system. Boasting a sleek design and innovative engineering, the Tesla Powerwall 2 will minimise your reliance on the main grid by using energy that’s been stored into the batteries from your solar power system.
The Tesla Powerwall 2 is capable of detecting grid outages and will automatically switch over to supplying you with the energy that has been stored in the Lithium batteries, even if you have a mains power outage during the day.
It is important to make sure that your solar array is an adequate size when installing a hybrid battery system.
A solar hybrid battery system distributes the energy from the solar array in the following way.
First the energy loads that are operating in your home during the day will be supplied by the solar energy first.
Secondly any excess energy will go to the batteries to keep them fully charged and to be stored for later use.
Then any excess once the batteries are fully charged will be exported to the grid.
Many of the retail energy providers are keen for you to keep using their energy for obvious reason.
We are currently seeing AGL and Origin Energy offer a .20 cents feed-in tariff for any exported energy from a solar power system.
While these incentives are being offered it is a good idea to make sure you do your payback calculations before outlying an money for a hybrid solar power system.
We love selling an installing hybrid systems but we get greater pleasure from proving the best money saving energy solution that will suit you and your family.
