Has anyone installed off-grid solar+wind hybrid system? My farm has unobstructed sun exposure for at least 8 months. During the monsoon months the wind turbine will be used to generate the power. The nearest utility line is HT 11kV and 1 km away. The cost of laying the line along with step down transformer is significant. And this is not an agri feeder so state utility will treat me as domestic LT customer (expensive).
The load is:
- Submersible pump (1.5 HP), 270 ft deep + 90 feet delivery head (to a tank on small hillock about 400 feet away). The water will be circulated using gravity fed drip.
- Lighting load - Farm house and servant quarter; 5 rooms together. (lights and fans and possibly one TV set), and a couple of lights in the yard.
I am in western Maharashtra.
