Solar &

Battery Systems

Hybrid Solar PV Systems combines both the power of the Sun & Solar Battery Storage enabling you to store solar energy and use it when you’re home during the evening when the cost of electricity is typically at the peak rate

What is A Hybrid Solar PV System?

Hybrid solar systems generate power in the same way as a common grid-tie solar system but use special hybrid Lux Power inverters and Pylon Tech or Aoboet Uhome batteries to store energy for later use. This ability to store energy enables most hybrid systems to also operate as a backup power supply during a blackout, similar to a UPS system.

Traditionally the term hybrid referred to two generation sources such as wind and solar but more recently the term ‘hybrid solar’ refers to a combination of solar and energy storage which is connected to the electricity grid.

Home Energy Group Ltd are now part of the “works With Octopus” program

Octopus Energy offers a range of tariffs with EV owners, solar and battery customers in
mind. They’re leading the way with time of use tariffs, offering you unparalleled value
and control over your energy. The right tariff for you will depend on your set up and how
your household consumes energy.

Our LXP Quantum Plus Battery Storage system is full automated to work with the Agile Octopus tariff.

Agile Octopus

Octopus Energy’s groundbreaking time of use tariff is perfect for anyone that can shift
their electricity use outside of peak times. Agile Octopus allows you to enjoy cheaper
electricity prices when wholesale prices fall – in some cases they’ll even pay you to use
energy as part of Plunge Pricing, whereby Octopus pays you to take excess energy off
the grid. As part of this tariff, you get access to half-hourly energy prices, tied to
wholesale prices and updated daily.

Here is an example of the “Octopus Agile” Price Plunge

Over the last 12 months, unit prices dropped below 2p / kWh 31 times.

Take Advantage of these low half-hourly cheap rates by allowing the LXP Quantum Plus to automatically charge your batteries with these cheap rates to use when the rates are much higher.

Why You Should Consider

Hybrid Battery Storage

Save more money

By using stored solar energy in the evenings or when the sun isn’t shining, you will not need to draw as much energy from your supplier, saving you even more money on your bills.


With a solar battery storage system, you are taking a step closer to energy independence and future proofing your home against impending issues such as brownouts and blackouts.

Protection from price hikes

Energy suppliers are continually hiking their prices. Indeed, they have been increasing at eight times the rate of earnings. By using your self-generated solar energy in the day and stored energy when the sun isn’t shining, you will be drawing less energy from your supplier.

Future protection

Battery software can be updated over the air, so as technology continues to develop, you will know that your investment will keep on improving with time.

Maximize solar energy

If you are exporting more than expected, due to being out during the day or low energy usage in general, then you are effectively exporting your investment in solar energy. Using stored energy will allow you to maximize on the solar energy that you have generated.

Time-of-use Tariffs

Some batteries have the ability to charge from the grid, making use of low-rate Time-Of-Use tariffs and providing a cheap alternative to drawing from the grid in winter months when your solar may not be producing as much.

Lux Power Hybrid Inverters with Pylon Tech US2000 Plus batteries is an intelligent energy monitoring system that stores a backup power supply in lithium solar batteries for use whenever the property demand is higher than the solar panel generation and solar power energy that is produced.

The Lux Power Hybrid Inverter and Pylon Tech US2000 Plus batteries works by directing excess solar power generated by solar pv panels to the Pylon Tech US2000 Plus solar panel batteries for later use, making it possible to utilise solar power independently by storing a backup power supply that can convert and direct solar power to where it is needed, when it is needed.

The Lux Power Hybrid Batteries come with built in Enhanced EPS, this feature allows the end-user to use their solar back up power in the event of a power outage alert or OFF GRID applications.

Step 01

Contact Us

Simply fill in our enquiry form and a member of our friendly team will contact you at a time convenient to you. When we contact you we will need to verify your address so we can preform an online roof survey

Step 02

Online Survey

After you have spoken to our team we will conduct a online survey to check the size, orientation and pitch of your roof, looking out for obvious issues that could affect the performance of a system. When we are satisfied that a solar PV installation would be suitable for your roof, we will schedule an appointment for one of our Energy Advisers to visit your home.

Step 03

Free Survey & Quote

We will conduct a free thorough survey of your home and will take time to explain how the technology works, where it will be installed. You may also be made aware of other products that could increase the performance of your system, or make your energy usage smarter once solar is installed. All of this information is put into your own personalised quote & report that you can look over in your own time.

Step 04


If you are happy with our quotation & report regarding your solar requirements and wish to proceed we will arrange a date of installation that fits around you.
