A Hybrid inverter is probably the most versatile option you can get. This type of inverter allows you to have backup power like an Off-Grid inverter but it also has the benefits of a Grid-Tied inverter.
How does the Hybrid Inverter work?
The basic principle of an inverter is to convert DC power to AC, but with modern Hybrid inverters, they provide more functionality than this.
Not only does this type of inverter convert the energy from the solar panels to power appliances, but it’s also smart enough to understand if the energy from the panels isn’t enough to power the load. From this, it supplements the remainder from the backup options, this could be from the battery or the grid. Learn more about Hybrid inverters in our Solar Inverter Guide.
