Answer: A hybrid system: These systems are powered by photovoltaic cells but have battery backup as well. It automatically switches between solar and battery power as needed. When the sun is shining, the electricity produced from the sun’s heat is used to run the A/c as well as charge the batteries. At night, when the when the sun is not shining, the system runs on battery backup while charging its batteries via alternating current (AC) power.
