Features of Hybrid Solar Power System
Hybrid Solar Power System
Modern hybrid systems combine solar and battery storage in one and are now available in many different forms and configurations. Due to the decreasing cost of battery storage, systems that are already connected to the electricity grid can start taking advantage of battery storage as well. This means being able to store solar energy that is generated during the day and using it at night. When the stored energy is depleted, the grid is there as a back up, allowing consumers to have the best of both worlds. Hybrid systems are also able to charge the batteries using cheap off-peak electricity (usually after midnight to 6am).

Main Components of This 5KW Grid-Tied Solar Power System
Listed below are the major components needed for a solar installation. Since each installation is unique, some parts/materials will need to be purchased separately to satisfy the needs of your specific project and local regulations.
1. Photovoltaic Modules (aka solar panels, solar electric panels)
The PV modules are the individual building blocks for providing power from the sun. They are typically made from silicon cells, glass, tedlar, and aluminum. Solar Panels can vary in type, size, shape, and color. The common nominal voltages for panels are 12V and 24V, in order to accomodate the voltage windows of grid tie inverters.
2. Racking/Mounts System for Solar Panels
The mounting system for the solar panels includes the hardware to permanently affix the array to either a roof, a pole, or the ground. These systems are typically made of aluminum and are customized to the mounting surface and the model of module used. It is important to consider distance from roof for flush-type roof mount installations. Restricting airflow under the modules results in higher module operating temperatures that reduce power output. With pole mounts wind loading must be considered and proper civil works must be done with the foundation for the pole as well as the possible addition of supplementary wind supports for the array frame.
3. Combiner Box
A combiner box is an electrical box where series strings of solar panels are then spliced in parallel. This is also the place where the PV series string fuses or circuit breakers are located. This allows the installer to bring the separate strings together and combine them into one positive and one negative conductor, change wire types and leave the area of the modules in conduit. They are usually outside and weather rated, so they can be right next to the array.
4. DC and AC Disconnects
The DC and AC disconnects are manual switch units that are capable of cutting off power to and from the inverter. Some inverters have disconnects integrated into the unit with switches, others can have them integrated into a power panel assembly, and some inverters leave you on your own to provide suitable disconnecting means. The disconnects are used by service personnel or authorized persons (fire/police/electric workers) to disable power from a renewable energy system (in this case PV) so that there are no live electrical parts associated with the inverter, and that no current is going to the grid that could harm utility employees in the event that they are working in your area. Homeowners or authorized personnel can use the disconnects to de-energize a system for maintenance or service.
5. Off-Grid Inverter
The grid tie inverter is the device that takes the energy that the photovoltaic system produces in DC current form and turns it to AC current that is then sent (sold) to the electric grid. These inverters typically have a voltage input range from 100 to 500 volts DC and they convert it into 120 volts AC, 240 volts AC, or 380 volts AC. These inverters are especially sophisticated devices that must conform to special regulations in order to tie into the utility. When the power goes out in your area, it is important to know that the grid tie inverter will not allow power to be sold back to the grid. This is done to prevent electric utility workers from being injured or killed by working on power lines they thought were de-energized. When the power goes out, your power will go out as well. A grid tie inverter will not resume normal operations until the utility grid has established standard conditions for 5 straight minutes within strict parameters.
Roof Mount Solar Racking Systems
A roof mount is a great option if your roof is sun-exposed and in good condition. It’s important to choose high quality components for a long-lasting, weatherproof installation.
You’ll need flashings, clamps or tile hooks to attach the racks to your rooftop. There are various options depending on your racking and type of roof (shingle, metal, or tile.)
Flat rooftops (or low slope roofs) can use similar racking hardware with tilt legs to achieve an appropriate angle. There are also ballasted racking systems, which aren’t drilled into the roof at all, but instead are weighted down with blocks.
Rooftop-mounted systems do not include the flashings or clamps required to attach the racking to your roof. Your roofing material will dictate what type of fasteners you will need:
Here’s what we recommend, based on your roofing material:
1. Shingle Rooftops: The KSUN Flashfoot 2 is great for shingle roofs.
2. Metal Rooftops: KSUN harware makes clamps that work with standing seam, corrugated and trapezoidal metal roofs.
3. Tile Rooftops: Quick Mount offers tile hooks and tile replacements to match your roof design.
Ground Mount Solar Racking System
Ground Mounts allow you to pick the optimal tilt angle in a south-facing direction. A standard ground mount is built on a structure of steel pipe and concrete at a fixed-tilt angle.
Pole Mounts allow you to adjust the tilt angle to maximize your power output throughout the seasons. A steeper tilt angle captures more power in the winter and also sheds snow off the panels. Pole mounts can be installed above foliage & snow banks to keep the panels clear of debris.
Trackers are pole-mounted racks that follow the sun to maximize daily production. Trackers are the most expensive option, and require maintenance, due to the complexity and moving parts. Trackers are mainly used for large utility-scale PV installations. Residential systems are typically better off installing a few extra panels on a fixed array.

Can I increase the size of my system in the future?
This depends on your roof space and the size of the inverter. If you have sufficient roof space and additional capacity in the inverter you could increase the size of your system. Or you could add a second system to your roof. Please note: At this time, the solar Feed-in Tariffs in each state have limits on the system size which to they apply. Increasing the size of an existing solar power system could affect your eligibility for a Feed-in Tariff. Please call us for further information.
Do solar panels work during blackout?
If your solar panel system is connected to the grid, it will shut off in the event of a blackout. This is to prevent emergency responders and electricity utility repair-people from being injured by your panels sending power back to the grid. However, there are certain inverters you can buy that provide backup power in a blackout when paired with a battery.
How do I check the performance of my solar system?
It’s easy to check your solar power system at any time. The majority of inverters offer a built in display that gives you a live data feed of how much power your system is generating. Most systems will give you historical data showing how your system has been performing over time.. If your solar inverter is wi-fi ready you can see your performance through web application on your mobile.
How do I find out how much I pay for electricity?
The easiest way to find out how much you pay for electricity (and how much electricity you use per month) is to take a look at your utility electricity bill. Alternatively you can call Sunboost to guide you reading your electricity bill to find out exactly what you use, need and have to look for.
How much roof space is required?
The amount of roof space required depends on the size of the system. For example, a small 1.5kW system requires 12m² of roof space. This is ideally an un-shaded and north-facing part of the roof. The system is modular and can be arranged in a way that best suits the roof.
What are the financial benefits of solar energy?
When you install a solar energy system on your property, you save money on your electricity bills and protect yourself against rising electricity rates in the future. How much you can save depends on the utility rates and solar policies in your area, but going solar is a smart investment regardless of where you live.
