The main objective of this paper is to design and develop the electrical energy administration and energy management system to apply in a Nile Tilapia fish pond. The solar hybrid system has already been used in the fish pond and works with three electrical energy sources. The controller is used to administrate and manage the electrical energy sources for supplying to the aerator. The new operational plan is improved and replaced with the previous operational plan, and it is embedded on the MCU core to evaluate and display via an online server. The administrator can adjust the events on a smart device to test each function and check the responses of the system. The reserve energy source is focused on the battery module, and it is tested to determine the feasibility and potentiality. The experimental results are divided into three parts; the first result shows the aeration system that uses three-phase blowers with the solar hybrid system and three electrical energy sources. The second result demonstrates a relatively good reaction to the new operation plan in each event in the fish pond. Finally, the system shows the feasibility and potentiality of the battery module under various operation and upon the variation of the electrical energy source
