I'd be worried that the inverters in the UPS are not capable of handling the sustained loading you'd be putting on them. I doubt they are rated for a constant hour duty cycle. One of the most expensive parts of the solar setups is the inverter/power tie in. You would have to have some sort of manual switch to cut off Hydro to run solar. Either that you'd need some sort of automatic setup to accomplish this.
