Solar hybrid systems generate power using photovoltaics and a supplementary generator powered, for example, by diesel or plant oil.
In remote rural areas that are not connected to the national electricity grid, village mini grids consisting of solar hybrid systems might be less costly than grid extension. They can replace batteries and fuel electricity generators and reach more people than single solar home systems.
Depending on their size and design solar hybrid systems offer AC power for 24 hours a day.
