15kva 3 phase Hybrid System
15kva 3 phase Hybrid System is used as a solutions when there are loadshedding.
Hybrid solar systems use a combination of grid-tied and off-grid solar systems.
These systems can either be described as off-grid solar with utility backup power or grid-tied solar with extra battery storage.
Sonop Solar certified solar installers in the Western and Northern Cape of South Africa has the following solutions ; Grid-Tie System, Off-Grid System, Hybrid System, Battery Backup System, Solar Pump System and Upgrade & Repair services.

TO HELP PROMOTE HIGH QUALITY INSTALLATIONS:
The South African PV GreenCard is a safety certification, a quality assurance standard, and training programme for solar PV installers. Quality and safety are assured via the specialized education and training provided to solar PV installers prior to them being certified and registered on the PV GreenCard database. This certification means that these installers are proficient and compliant with all of the relevant national and municipal electrical regulations.
On completion of an installation, a certified PV GreenCard installer will issue the client with both a digital and physical document that details all of the specifications of the solar PV system as well as a checklist that all of the required installation steps have been completed to the required standard. This document can in turn be used as proof of compliance for insurance, finance, and regulatory purposes.
The PV GreenCard opens new business opportunities to Solar PV SMEs and entrepreneurs wanting to access this market and provides customers with peace of mind that their system is safe, compliant, and in line with international quality standards.
The PV GreenCard programme supports SAPVIA’s aim for the orderly development and continued cohesion of the roof-top Solar PV market segment. The protection and confidence of affected stakeholders (Solar PV installation companies, Solar PV system owners, investors, banks, insurance companies, electricity distributors (i.e. municipalities and Eskom), and relevant state organs) have been consulted and catered to through this initiative.
Hybrid Storage System with a Freedom Won LIFePO4 Lithium Ion Battery
This is Hybrid ESS(Energy storage system) system consists out of an:
- Inverter: Victron MultiPlus 48/5000
- Battery: FreedomWon Lite 15/11 kw
- Charge Controller: Victron Smart Solar MPPT 150/100
- PV Modules: 24 x 175 watt Solar Frontier Thin Film
This Hybrid system is used for daily running the household and charging of batteries.
The Property is running of the batteries when solar is not available anymore.
When battery reaches a certain SOC(State of Charge) loads are bypassed to the grid again.

Solar Power, Sun Energy or Renewable Energy for your home.
Whether you call it solar power, sun energy or renewable energy. We know the only thing you really care about is to have something that works for your home.
Sonop Solar can help you step by step with this process of understanding the green world that you want to enter.
The different Solar Energy systems.
Grid-Tie Systems (1.5 kW – 1 MW)
This is a system where you are connected to the grid. DC power from the PV modules is converted by the grid-tied inverter to AC power to feed your consumption during the day and feed excess power back into the grid. There are no batteries involved – the utility is the battery. So when the utility is off, your system is also off. This system offers massive savings on your electricity bill. Batteries can be connected at a later stage with an additional inverter.
Example: Average house uses 1000 units per month
1000 units ÷ 30 days ÷ 5.5 sun hours = 6.06 kW/h
6 kW grid-tie inverters
24 x 255 W polycrystalline solar panels
Railings, cable, connectors, breakers, fuses, etc.
Stand Alone System / Off-Grid System
If you are living in a remote area where you are not connected to the main electricity grid or want to be 100% independent in your power use, installing an off-grid solar power system for your electricity needs could be the best solution.
If you decide to go off grid, you will need solar panels, a charge controller, an inverter and batteries where you can store excess solar electricity. These batteries will supply you with energy even when there is no sunshine. The sun shining onto your solar panels will generate DC (direct current) electricity, which is fed into a regulator. Once your batteries are charged, you can run your electrical appliances directly off the batteries or route the direct current through an inverter which converts the electricity and will let you run all your standard household appliances.
Example: 5 kVA Stand-alone system
5 kVA inverter/charger
100 Amp charge controller
12 x 255 W polycrystalline solar panels
24 x 1660 Ah 2 V batteries
Combiner box, fuses, breakers, cable, railings, connectors.
Backup power : 40 kW @ 4kW = 10 hours
Hybrid solar systems combine the best from grid-tied and off-grid solar systems. These systems can either be described as off-grid solar with utility backup power, or grid-tied solar with extra battery storage.
Hybrid non-grid feed in, which is for backup and self-consumption, are connected to the PV modules, utility or generator, batteries and to the load. There is no need for a charge controller/regulator.
Example: 5 kVA
5 kVA hybrid inverter
12 x 255 W polycrystalline solar panels
12 x 260 Ah 12 V batteries
Combiner box, railings, fuses, breakers, cable, connectors, etc.
Backup power : 18.7 kW @ 4 kW = 4.5 hours
We have UPS or backup solutions for when the utility fails. When the utility fails the UPS changes over automatic within milliseconds. The inverter is sized by your load you want to use and the batteries are sized to the backup time you want when the utility fails.
Example: 5 kVA (4000 W) load for 3 hours backup
Inverter/charger 5 kVA
8 x 12 v 260 Ah batteries
Cable, breakers, etc.
12 480 kW/h ÷ 4000 W = 3.1 hours backup @ 50% depth of discharge
This pumping solution is used where there is no utility and is too expensive to get the utility on the site. A normal existing 230 V or 380 V pump can be used for pumping. A solar pump controller is used to convert the DC, of the solar panels, to 230 V or 380 V AC. The system runs only during normal sun hours. Applications from 0.75 kW – 250 kW can be used. The PV modules for this system is sized 1.8 – 2 times the size of the motor. Your pumping cost will be zero for 25 years.
Example: 11 kW pump + motor
11 kW solar pump controller (solar VSD)
86 x 255 W polycrystalline solar panels
Railings, cable, connectors, etc.
And your pump is running for FREE!
