Wide Range of Power System Options
Renewable power systems can be used to cover a widerange of needs, including
Dedicated Use:
Power being used at pointsources without regulation
Small or Simple Systems:
Power systems for individual buildings and dispersed generationwhere high level of reliability is not required
Community Power Systems:
Utility-providedpower to larger communities or group of buildings with larger loads
Wind-Diesel Systems:
Large communities or facilities with large loads
Integrated Systems:
Large islanded systemsincorporating conventional and large-scalerenewable generation
