Hybrid 3KW Solar System

A hybrid solar system combines the functions and specifications of both on grid solar system and off grid solar system. One side, this solar system can be connected with government grid and on the other side, it can store power in the batteries. In other words, it has same functions of on grid solar system but also have batteries to store power for later use. By installing 2kW hybrid solar system (without solar batteries), you can avail up to government subsidy.

Expert Advice

We advise you to go with 3kW off-grid solar system since it will prioritise your load and feed the balance electricity to the battery bank. This solar system will provide you power backup during hard time. Furthermore, the solar batteries are adequate to store the excess power. For a 3kW capacity, you don’t require an on-grid solar system.

Also, you won’t need to spend money on net-metering in this case. You will enjoy the luxury of an independent off grid solar system with battery bank for the same price.

FAQs – 3kW Solar System

All types of solar system is best for home. If you are suffering from long electricity cuts on regular basis than you should install off grid solar system. If you are facing the problem of heavy electricity bill than you should install on grid solar system. And if you want the solution of both above mentioned problems than you must go for hybrid solar system.

The cost of 3 KW solar system depends upon its type:

  • 3 KW on grid solar system – Rs.1,15,482
  • 3 KW off grid solar system – Rs.2,11,313
  • 3 KW hybrid solar system – Rs.2,37,039

For 3 KW off grid solar system, 4 batteries of 12V (150Ah) is enough. But if want more backup than you can install more batteries in 3 kilowatt solar system.

A 3 KW solar system can produce 12 units/day or 360 units/month as an average. But the real generation of solar power system depends upon the sunlight.

On grid solar system ties with utility grid. You can supply excess power into the utility grid through net-metering. Government will adjust it in your upcoming electricity bills.
