Hybrid solar systems come with a solar system and also battery storage with connection to the grid. This in a way reduces reliance on the grid network as it gives an option to choose solar power that is generated by you on your own, or rely on the conventional method of feeding/connecting the solar power system back with the main grid. Hybrid systems provide an opportunity to be energy self-sufficient. This means in the event of a power failure, the grid will not affect the hybrid solar system. Hybrid systems are increasingly popular in rural areas where blackouts are very frequent.
