Hybrid energy systems such solar and wind energy in combination with diesel generator can be applied successfully in areas where grid connection is not available or considered uneconomical. Their costs can be minimized through proper equipment sizing and load matching. This study represents the cost analysis of various models of hybrid systems for powering a remote area telecom tower located at an island village Barakolikhola (Latitude 20 0 33' N and Longitude 86 0 73' E) of Kendrapara district… Expand
