Hybrid Power System

Hybrid power generation systems can combine solar, wind, battery and generator power to keep your island hideaway running around the clock and around the year. In many parts of the world, the peak operating conditions for solar and wind power occur at different times of the day or even during different seasons, so a hybrid system is more likely to deliver electricity when you need it. Reserve power (up to three days worth) can be stored in battery banks and a diesel or gasoline generator can be added to the system for those rare island days when there is neither wind nor sunshine.

Hybrid systems are designed to be operated "off the grid" (i.e. not connected to a commercial power distribution system) which makes them ideal for stand-alone operation. Sophisticated electronic controllers manage the multiple power sources and monitor the status of the batteries. If the reserve runs low, the controller automatically starts the generator to supply power and charge the battery bank.
