“Wind and solar pair well together,
. . . because solar produces during the day, and
. . . wind is more of a nighttime source.
And with storage you have a great project to offer utilities.”
A wind-solar hybrid project, in western Minnesota,
. . . is among the first of its kind in the country,
. . . to pair wind, and solar on the same site:
. . . . . . 2-megawatt turbine, and
. . . . . . 500-kilowatt solar installation,
. . . in a plug-and-play nature, share an inverter, and grid connection,
. . . reducing equipment costs, compared to 2 separate projects.
Solar and wind farms need inverters,
. . . to convert direct current to alternate current used by businesses, and residences.
Using an inverter built into the turbine, and
. . . not needing a separate solar inverter, saved at least
. . . 10% off the cost of the nearly
. . . $5 million project.
