Taking into account the directives of the European Union concerning the increasing role of renewable power sources for supplying loads and reduction of CO2 emission, this paper presents details of the technical and economic characteristics for a hybrid solution generation power system. The goal of this micro power system is to supply residential electrical load that consist in 60 consumers of 5 kW each. Yet, considering the different variability of the most important renewable resources, wind and solar, the hybrid solution is investigated to found the optimal mix solar-wind for a maximum founding option. The investigation is realized using the NREL HOMER package.
