Solar Power Plant with Generator backup

Updated: Aug 27, 2021


1. On-grid [grid tie] solar power plant with generator backup.

2. Off-Gird solar power plant with generator backup.


The fuel for a solar power plant required to generate electricity in sunlight. And generators like diesel generators, petrol generators or biomass generate required their own specific fuel to generate electricity. Also, there are solar generators which are popular in some countries, which are basically portable off-grid power plants with battery backup.

Can Solar power plants have generator backup? And which type of solar inverters support generator backup?

What is the type of solar power plant, is determined by;

  1. type of inverter used in it (micro-inverter, string inverter, off-grid inverter or hybrid inverter),

  2. connected with grid or not (on-grid type or off-grid type),

  3. have battery backup or not

So, what type of solar power plant can have generator backup and which type of solar power plant required generator backup.

Both on-grid type and off-grid type solar power plants can have generator backup, but the requirement of a generator back for both is completely different.
