Key Points

  • A combined solar and wind power system can generate more hours of electricity than separate solar and wind power structures.
  • Such hybrid systems work best in areas with consistent wind and sun exposure.
  • More costly than a separate solar or wind system.
  • Rural or remote off-grid areas with no transmission lines are the best locations for a hybrid energy system.
  • Regulatory restrictions can complicate the installation of residential wind turbines.
