The project utilizes the resources available locally like sunlight, wind and biogas plant which can be installed with aids from government. A controller is designed to switch between generation sources with preference to renewable modes. When renewable energy is excess, the biogas is shut down and the power is used to pump water to a higher level, which can later be used for agriculture and micro hydro generation. In the hybrid system, energy has a higher reliability, can be cost effective and improve the quality of life in small town. At large scale and hybrid system will independently provide a stable power source and daily gas for small towns. Hybrid power system that aims to increase the system efficiency and increase use of renewable energy based hybrid power system. In order to meet sustained load demands during varying natural conditions, different renewable energy sources need to be integrated with each other like solar ,wind , waste of energy municipal waste/ liquid waste, small hydro.
