The Hybrid House provides an example for what sustainable housing solutions could look like. It also functions as a potential solution to the current rural electrification issues many developing countries face. The use of a DC-DC MISO converter allows for combining multiple power sources into a single DC bus. The Hybrid House integrates the DC bus by employing the use of DC-DC converters for home use. This system may potentially improve the overall system efficiency by avoiding the losses associated with AC-DC converters. The use of the DC bus further leverages the Solar Panel renewable energy solution to become a more formidable power solution. This increased efficiency aligns with the overall goal of the Hybrid House which is to utilize mostly renewable energy in a home while still having the capability of integrating the grid power. Consequently, the Hybrid AC-DC House also offers an alternative solution for future sustainable house with improved reliability
