Also called Off Grid or Remote Area Power Systems, these power stations are ideal for buildings were power is not available, power is too expensive to connect, or purely to be completely independent of the grid and generate your own power.
Hybrid Systems allow a building to draw its power requirements from a PV Array, a battery backup and also the grid. They can be an easy upgrade solution to a current Grid Connect Solar System offering back up power from both a battery bank and/or small generator and can be set up to only utilise grid power as a last resort.
These systems are the most common and allow daytime house loads to be supplied by a PV Array rather than the grid. Any excess power from the array is typically fed back into grid for approximately 5c per KWh. These systems are ideal for buildings that consume the majority of their energy during the day as they do not assist with offsetting grid usage at night.
Towards Tomorrow Energy was established in 2001 and specialise in Off Grid and Hybrid Solar Power Systems. Since our inception we have remained dedicated to the promotion of sustainable self sufficiency for both local and remote communities across Australia. Established as a community service organisation, our primary role is to educate and assist our community in becoming less dependent on energy infrastructure and fossil fuel resources and becoming more self sufficient, leading the way towards a greener tomorrow. In order to ensure a stable environment for future generations, more sustainable practices need to be implemented in our day to day lives. The adoption of solar technology is just one easy step households can take to embrace a greener future, and that’s where Towards Tomorrow Energy comes in — Our role is to make your transition to a more sustainable future easy!
With over 200 Solar Systems installed across Australia, including our own homes and factory which all produce their own power, Towards Tomorrow Energy can assist with all of your solar energy needs, specialising in the design and implementation of Off Grid, Hybrid and Grid Connect Solar Systems in rural and remote areas. We offer a passionate, professional and personalised service from assessment of your energy requirements through to the facilitation of system installations and commissioning.
