A grid-hybrid PV system is also a grid-tied system and is ideal for consumers who are already connected to the utility grid but are prone to power outages.
These systems are similar to grid-tied solar PV system, but with a battery bank connected to it. Batteries offer emergency backup power during grid failure. During an outage, the batteries take over as a backup power source to power critical appliances. Similarly, if energy generated by the system is more than required, the surplus power generated can be exported to the utility grid.
These systems cost more than grid-tied solar PV systems as the cost of battery banks is additional.
