We make Global Solar Hybrid Power Systems for the world.
There are times when battery-based solar systems fail to provide reliable power to critical systems, including :
Operational challenges for solar only systems
- Daily available sunlight: no sun = no power.
- Extreme cold: during winter months, solar systems fail due to extreme temperatures, snow covered solar panels, and reduced daily sunlight.
These conditions prevent batteries from maintaining a consistent or minimal charge, often resulting in costly replacement due to failure.
- Extreme heat: contrary to popular belief, batteries do not work well in extreme heat. In fact, extreme heat damages and degrades batteryperformance making frequent replacement the only option. Cost of batteries, along with cost of site visits, becomes a burden.
- The solution: by incorporating a thermoelectric generator (TEG) to your site, you can eliminate system downtime while saving on operational
costs (site visits, maintenance, battery replacement) in both the short- and long-term.

How it works
Solar Hybrid systems combine photovoltaic (PV) panels and Thermoelectric (TEG) or M-Series Generators to decrease the size and cost of the PV and battery requirements, while keeping system reliability at the highest possible level.
By incorporating a TEG or M-Series generator to your site, you can eliminate system downtime while saving on operational costs (site visits, maintenance, battery replacement) in both the short- and long-term.
The Global Power Technologies (GPT) Solar Hybrid Controller monitors the battery bank’s state of charge and starts the generator when the battery becomes too low. When the PV array is delivering enough energy for the battery to exceed the minimum state of charge to the load, the generator can turn itself off until required again.
The chart below illustrates performance of a Solar-only system vs. TEG Hybrid system during a typical solar year.
