Most energy experts agree that distributed generation will play a major role in the implementation of renewable energy in the US electrical market in the years to come.
Hybrid Renewables technology provides:
Clean Energy at Scale
The SolarWind Hybrid package design economically blends commercial-scale clean, renewable energy into the grid at lower cost and efficient land use, adding reliability to the system. These Hybrids can fuel the electrifying of a low-cost rural transportation system with locally produced sustainable energy.
A Path to Energy Independence
SolarWind Hybrids positions Communities and Companies for the capturing and keeping of a sizable portion of the energy dollars normally leaving the local economy – plus the creation jobs, providing long-term economic value.
Affordable, Low-Impact Power
The SolarWind Hybrid delivers low-cost electrical energy and electrical capacity to the community with no fuel, no emissions, no waste, no water, and no transmission costs – it truly is least cost energy!!
Our Wind/Solar hybrid system generates and delivers electricity close to where it is consumed, delivering sustainable energy to the local Community with no need for additional transmission upgrades, and providing a low-cost energy solution.

Solar-versus-wind resources across the state of Minnesota at the monthly interval in 2016. Pictured is both a 30-day moving average and locally weighted trendline for each resource.
Strongly visible is the seasonal anti-correlation between the wind and solar resources across the state. Wind resource peaks in December and April (coming to a minimum in August) while the solar resource experiences its maximum and minimum at the solstices.
