Abstract

Energy consumption has grown dramatically in the recent years. One of the major sources of energy is fossil fuel, which has limited resources and also pollutes the air. Over the past decades, researchers have looked for a reliable alternative to fossil fuels. One of the most appropriate solutions is the use of renewable energy sources. The main objective of this research is to evaluate the economic of three hybrid power plant sites named as a village, a border checkpoint and a farm, by Homer software. The final cost of an off-network renewable power plant for the village, border post and farm site is $ 23,288, $ 56,000, and $ 7795438, respectively, while the final cost of the on-network power plant for each of the three sites is $ 4531, $ 172125 and $ 3491431, respectively. The results indicate that the three off-network hybrid power plants are not economically feasible.
