Wind-diesel system is the only power source on this isolated island in Estonia
23 Years After the Reagan Administration Removed Solar Panels, the White House Installs a New Solar Thermal and Electric System
The question is why are you interested in using solar or wind energy? Is it because you need some back-up electricity for when the utility grid is unavailable? Or is it because you want to spend less money per month on electricity?
As onlooking eyes filled with wonder watched, I assembled the three solar panels to the framework, it was time to hoist the finished array onto the roof. We were on the front side of the clinic and the ladder was not very good. We got the array to the top of the ladder but I could not get my helpers to go up on the roof.
News articles indicate that photovoltaics are already cost effective in Hawaii and some parts of California. Photovoltaics are also cheaper than electric grid power if you wish to power a remote home that is more than 2 miles from the nearest power line.
