Hybrid Inverters in Arizona, California, New Mexico, and Surrounding States
Maybe you already have an existing solar system on your property, or you might be looking to add a solar system to your property in Arizona, California, or New Mexico. In either case, you need to have an inverter as part of your system, and a hybrid inverter from Solar Biz will be the best option. Your solar panels produce electricity as direct current (DC) electricity, but this doesn't work for the wiring and appliances in your home. You need to convert it to alternating current (AC) in order for it to be used in your home as well as connected to the power grid. The hybrid inverters from Solar Biz are the solution to this issue.
Why Hybrid Inverters
When you are putting together your solar system on your property, you need to have an inverter to change the power generated from your solar panels from DC to AC current. The wiring and appliances in your home operate using AC current, so you need an inverter to make this transition so the solar power you generate will be usable in your home.
However, most people also have a battery bank where they can store extra power that isn't used right away. When you pull the power from these batteries, you also need to have an inverter to convert that DC power to AC to use in your home. Because these solar panels and batteries are all connected, rather than have a number of inverters, instead you have a single hybrid inverter that can deal with all of the different directions power flows and handle the conversion between DC and AC current.
Advantages of Hybrid Inverters
You don't need to have batteries to have a hybrid inverter as part of your system. Many people build their systems without batteries at first because of the cost. In order to keep the cost of a solar panel system lower, many opt to only have solar panels to help offset some of the electricity use during the day, while still pulling power from the grid at night. If you have designs of adding batteries to your system at a later date, you may as well get the hybrid inverter from the get-go so you are ready at any time to add batteries.
Having a hybrid inverter also allows you to easily monitor your solar panels as well as your batteries. You can see if the power is going to your home, your batteries, or back to the grid. Regardless of where in Arizona, California, or New Mexico your home is, when you are ready for a solar system, be sure to work with Solar Biz and include a hybrid inverter.
