Sometimes, more than one type of solar energy is installed, for instance, photovoltaic and eolic, because the weather conditions make it more advantageous.
Functionality of a Wind and solar power facility is identical to the photovoltaic ones. The only difference is that a wind mill is added to the installation, together with a regulator, that transforms DC electricty produced by aerogenerator in AC to elevate potencial of solar panels.
Disadvantages of diesel power generation
• Logistics: distribution and storage of fuel
• is a dirty fuel emanating CO2 emong other toxics
• is expensive and its price rises continuously
• is not renewable. The peak oil is near, as it announces the International Energy Agency.
For this reason, an option increasingly extends into rural areas is the use of renewable energy to generate electricity.
Ventajas de la electrificacion rural mediante fotovoltaica o eolica
Renewable: solar and wind energy is not exhausted when prey
• Ecological: renewable plants do not emit CO2 or other pollutants
• cheap: after an initial investment to purchase the equipment for installation, the fuel is free, since it provides the same nature.
• Simple: it works automatically with minimal maintenance, so you do not need to be worrying about having enough fuel continents
• Receives Grants
USA is a territory particularly advantageous for the use of photovoltaic solar energy, given the amount of solar radiation we receive throughout the year. In some places, especially in the mountains, it is advisable to make a hybrid installation, ie it also includes a wind turbine to supplement the production of electricity, since weather conditions that produce both energies are complementary. In addition both systems enjoy the opportunity to receive grants to install.

Solar system in Alaska
Hybrid photovoltaic installation with eolic and solar energy for agricultural use in Alaska . It combines 1 photovoltaic plate of 125 Wp with a 400 Wp wind turbine
Also included are, a solar regulator, 6 batteries of 680 A, a 1500 W inverter and a 20 A regulator. The installed power is 125 Wp photovoltaic and 400 Wp eolic, for an average consumption of 1.2 kWh/day. It also has an inverter that converts direct current into alternating current, suitable for the use of appliances. To enhance the performance of the installation, stationary batteries are used. They are less economic than block (car type) bateries, but, more durable and efficient. When we talk about eolic energy, we tend to think of the great parks of companies such as Iberdrola and Acciona, but, wind power can also be used in small domestic installations, if the wind has a minimum strenght in that area. In fact, when a rural home or business needs electricity, combining solar photovoltaic and wind power is the best option, because, the weather conditions that produce them, complement each other.

Project Lead: Rorik Peterson Kodiak Electric Association (KEA) serves the community of Kodiak, Alaska and is a grid isolated utility with generation including a combination of diesel engines and hydropower. KEA is also constructing a wind farm on nearby Pillar Mountain, which will include the installation of three General
- Solar Energy Education
Solar energy is the main cause of almost every life on earth. Without it, life on earth is impossible. The best thing is that it is free and inexhaustible. But, most of the people enjoy it without knowing how it enters into your life i.e. what is the reason behind the great benefits that you
- Pros and Cons of Residential Solar Energy System
Harnessing the power of the sun’s ray to create energy to power our house is very appealing. But the question is, “Is everything about solar energy good?” Looking at the current price of fossil fuel-based electricity, it is quite impractical to convert into solar energy system. However, with the growing concern on the state of
- Home Solar Power Systems Can Cut Electric Costs
Home Solar Power Systems Can Cut Electric Costs The thought of free electricity is attractive to just about every homeowner and after calculating the costs versus the extended return on investment, home solar power systems are becoming more interesting to many around the world. However, the climate in which they live
- Solar Panels vs. Solar Shingles
Solar Panels vs. Solar Shingles These two photovoltaic (PV) technologies both bring renewable energy to your home the same way, but there are a few things to consider when choosing between them. Each is better suited to a certain type of structure – and this is likely to factor into your decision. Let’s begin with
