Installing a Home Hybrid Solar PV System with Battery Backup. Before and After

Home Hybrid Solar PV System with Battery Backup

Home Hybrid Solar PV System with Battery Backup ( Solar Thermal Magazine ) – This next video has no voice over or much in the way of sub titles but really it is worth watching if you are considering putting a solar pv power system on your roof.

This system as built is a 8.4 KW Hybrid Grid tie Battery backup Solar Panel System which has enough power to run most everything you may need in a medium sized home. There are some detail pictures that we have included of the panel strapping , battery backup and inverter controller. The picture does not do it justice but the video does, especially when you see the utility supplied power meter spin backwards when the system comes online.

Take a look.

    Home Hybrid Solar PV System with Battery has immense opening in PAKISTAN because PAKISTAN is alredy facing severe Load Shedding. Apart from houses, solar appliances will be in great demand ie Solar cooker is required everywhere bcz we are also facing critical Gas Shortages. Whoso ever will take imitative for setting up plant for manufacture of Panels, will have great Fortune right from the beginning. A prosperious future waits for good investors.

    hawaii electric installed a solar system with battery backup. It was supposed to last 5 years, instead it was worthless after 1 year. Unless those are lithium ion batteries I doubt that system will last that long. The technology is not here yet

    Just a note about energy.
    Our whole existence is predicated
    on energy.
    For most of us energy is centralized.
    When that source is compromised by
    natural storms etc. Or by CYBER ATTACK everything stops:
    NO LIGHTS
    NO AC OR HEAT
    SOON NO FUEL FOR TRANSPORTATION ( YOU NEED ELECTRICITY TO PUMP THE FOSSIL FUEL.)
    NO FOOD DELIVERED TO STORES.
    IN THE FINAL ANALYSIS, CHAOS PREVAILS.
    CAN WE AS INDIVIDUALS DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS DILEMMA?
    YES !!!!
    START SLOWLY IF YOU MUST, BEGIN
    TO EXPLORE THE POSSIBILITY OF
    SOLAR ENERGY.
    BUY A SOLAR PANEL, ADD A BATTERY
    AND AN INVERTER. AT LEAST THEN YOU CAN HAVE LIGHTS. IF YOU GET A PURE SINE INVERTER YOU CAN CHARGE YOUR PHONE, PLUG IN YOUR COMPUTER AND AT LEAST COMMUNICATE WITH WHOMEVER YOU NEED TO CONTACT.
    A WHOLE HOUSE SYSTEM IS THE OPTIMUM SOURCE OF SAFETY.
    GET ON THE LEARNING CURVE AND SHARE THE INFORMATION WITH EVERYONE. YOU CAN DO THIS !!!

    Solar panels are getting cheaper to buy but still need to be cheaper so many more can take this solar option.As for the batteries for a solar system like this,do some research on them.There is cheap rubbish batteries which won’t last longterm.Even more expensive options dont give true specs.You need deep cycle with more depth between bottom of plates to base of battery,those are the ones to go for.Some high quality fork lift batteries that have been used have lasted years.
