In this study, the solar radiation and wind data pertaining to Bigadic region are analyzed to assess the performance of a hybrid Photovoltaic-Wind-Diesel-Battery energy system. The average energy consumption of the system is about 20.33 kWh per day and 600 kWh per month, with a peak power demand of 2.4 kW. A 10 kW Wind Turbine and a 1 kWp PV energy system with 48 kW battery are installed. The emissions and energy costs are calculated and compared with the diesel-only and hybrid system. A break-even analysis is conducted for the hybrid system, which turned out to equal 1.44 km.
