    Has anyone got such a hybrid system with elements of both?

    e.g. Standard 4kW grid tied; plus extra (up to 6kW) off grid.

    If so how do you manage it?

    e.g. Battery storage, or some devices on a separate circuit.

    'notwty' on Navitron has both grid tie and off-grid.
    The off-grid has a battery and he uses switching (some of it automatic) so that some circuits can be supplied by either the grid or the off-grid depending on the SOC ofthe battery, time of day, etc.,

    The first link is about the system in general (and how it has developed along the way). The second is about using an "immersion diverter" device on the off-grid system, but may also be of interest.
