Abstract
This paper compares the photovoltaic and wind turbine farm supply of village in the area of Ayer Keroh, park linked to the grid of Malaysia. The research is done on an energetic economic method according to temperature, wind speed, solar irradiation, installed system with estimated cost and energy consumption solutions were found of time profile. Hence, this is done by using Homer Pro environment simulator. Certainly, the best solution had a minimum resources to the electric grid with a maximum integrated renewable energy. Financial and technical features results showed different configurations achieved for the supply of the area chosen. Thus, from the solutions obtained by the two systems we found that solar energy gives the best efficiency in harvesting renewable energy because that the photovoltaic farm suffers from less fluctuation due to the equatorial climate of Malaysia where the amount of sunlight and temperature remains mostly constant during the day. The necessary capital required to build this PV farm system comes to a total net present cost (NPC) of RM 2,520,391.00 with an operating cost of RM 579,887.00 per year and a negative cost of energy of RM0.05423 per kWh. This shows that we are actually generating more than enough supply while earning cash from the grid.
