Load shedding has always been a problem for Pakistan, and currently, it doesn’t seem like the energy shortfall of the country is going to go away any time soon. With an ongoing economic crisis and very limited resources left, the future of Pakistan’s energy crisis doesn’t look very encouraging. Load shedding has reached up to 10 hours in certain parts of the country, leaving no doubt that Pakistan has once again plummeted into an energy shortfall. The situation is certainly very grim, but all is not lost. With Sympl Energy’s hybrid solar energy systems, you can put an end to load shedding once and for all!
What Is A Hybrid Solar System?
Sympli put, a hybrid solar energy system takes the pros of both on-grid and off-grid systems and packages them into one complete solution. Hybrid systems are grid-connected and also include batteries, meaning that you can not only take advantage of net metering but also have electricity backup for when the grid goes down. This way, by installing a hybrid solar system on your property, you get the most complete and technologically advanced solar system.
How Does A Hybrid System Work?
The basic principles of a hybrid system are similar to those of other solar energy systems. It works by converting sunlight into electricity which is used to power appliances throughout your property. The excess electricity which is not being consumed is then used to charge the batteries attached to the hybrid solar energy system. These batteries provide power backup when the system is not producing any electricity, for instance during load shedding, nighttime, and rainy days. This isn’t the end of it though, because after all this if there is still energy left, then that energy is transferred to the electric grid through net metering which acts as a secondary backup for your property. This means that even when the grid goes down or there is load shedding, your premises stays on!

Benefits of a Hybrid Solar System
No Load Shedding, Ever!
Imagine never having to face load shedding. Sounds dreamy, right? Well, it’s possible with Sympl because after installing a hybrid solar energy system, you can forget about load shedding or any other sort of power outage. This is because the batteries attached to your solar system store the excess generated electricity and provide backup during such times. So, with a hybrid solar system, you can have a smooth and reliable supply of electricity at all times.
Double Your Savings
A hybrid system can help you save much more money as compared to an on-grid system. This is because at night when the solar system is not producing electricity, the batteries can be used as a backup instead of the grid. This reduces the usage of electricity from the grid and hence, results in zero to negative bills.
Multiple Energy Backups
A hybrid solar system works by combining the benefits of both on-grid and off-grid systems. This means that along with a battery backup, you can also take advantage of net metering with your hybrid systems. After your batteries have been completely charged, the grid acts as a secondary backup with the help of a net-metering system. So, in this case, you don’t waste any electricity because of having multiple backups.
