WHAT IS A HYBRID GENERATOR?
Hybrid generators combine a traditional diesel generator, and energy storage source and an alternative renewable energy source to create a highly effective energy system. The hybrid generator includes lithium ion batteries which are charged via the diesel engine and in conjunction with renewable energy from wind or solar sources.
WHY USE A HYBRID GENERATOR
Diesel hybrid energy systems can be extremely efficient, combining the best of both worlds. Connect your diesel hybrid generator to a renewable energy source and you’ll save on diesel fuel costs and reduce your carbon footprint. Even the need for generator servicing is reduced.
Hybrid generators are often used for agricultural projects, construction, events, telco projects, remote power and disaster relief.
The telecommunication industry often uses hybrid generators to power a base transceiver station (BTS), especially in remote regions. With a hybrid generator installed, a BTS will generally use battery power 15 Hours per day and the diesel engine 9 Hours a day.
ADVANTAGES OF A HYBRID GENERATOR
A hybrid generator is environmentally friendly
By combining a renewable energy source with diesel fuel, they greatly reduce the amount of traditional fossil fuels needed to keep the generator running, therefore lowering carbon emissions.
Lower noise pollution
These generators are significantly less noisy than traditional generators.
Lower fuel consumption
A hybrid generator will lower your fuel consumption by up to 65% when compared to a traditional diesel, petrol or gas generator.
This generator provides continuous power, ensuring your business doesn’t lose power. The battery system is fully automated, so that the hybrid system supplies uninterrupted power without delay. As soon as a power outage is detected, the hybrid seamlessly supplies power.
A hybrid generator can be relatively compact and light weight.
