How to simultaneously connect Solar AND Hydro generation to power up a large house?

  • Total demand roughly 8 kWh
  • Loads single phase/220 V / 50 Hz, though may need to add a 3-phase/380V/50-60Hz later on
  • The hydro turbine should be able to produce about 3 kWh (365/7/24), and located about 150 meters from the house
  • I am still working on sizing the solar capacity
  • What storage/battery size, technology, and manufacturer would you recommend?
  • Would you be able to recommend a configuration and specific equipment?

Thanks in advance !

Not really the place for System Design

Long, multifaceted issues involving system design, multiple run on questions with very specific installation and nuanced details are not really well suited for the structure of the community. It is best to have a single question with a clear title per post. More complex enquires are best be directed towards your distributor.


You should ask your dealer and/or a local Victron installer.
