Electrification to rural and remote areas with limited or no access to grid connection is one of the most challenging issues in developing countries like Iran. Most of electricity demand in Iran’s remote areas is met by diesel generators, although they lead into environmental problems and economic concerns. These issues can be minimized by hybrid renewable energy systems. This research paper aims at analyzing a hybrid system based on the wind, photovoltaic (PV) panels, diesel generators, storage batteries, for rural electrification in an off-grid village of 10 families in Dameghan in the central part of Iran. HOMER software System was simulated by using HOMER software to optimize system control variables, based on the load management strategies. The results show that current net system cost and pollutants emission rates are 75315 $ and 6470 kg/year respectively. Such an analyzed hybrid energy system might be applicable for other regions in Iran as well.
