A grid-tied system works like an alternator. When energy can be sourced from the sun, the solar panels will generate electricity to fuel your requirements. Excess capacity is sold back into the local grid. Conversely, power is drawn from the mains grid to make up the shortfall when insufficient electricity is available.
A hybrid system is still connected to the grid but reduces your reliance even further by storing excess power in batteries for use when the sun has set.
Disconnect entirely from the grid and install solar panels, inverters and battery storage to become entirely self-sufficient and self-efficient.
We have been dealing with Chris at Hiko for all our electrical needs since purchasing a property in Mt Maunganui 3 years ago. He has done everything from changing light fittings to upgrading the switchboard to accommodate a new kitchen with induction cook top - and all the wiring of the kitchen. Chris is a delight to work with - punctual, calm and is one of those tradespeople who sees solutions not problems.
Highly recommend Chris and the guys at Hiko Electrical. Professional service, on time, no fuss
Hiko Electrical quickly and professionally installed the wiring for our new kitchen. Very friendly and polite. it was a pleasure having them in our home.
