The application of renewable energy system has become an important alternative as power provider in rural electrification program when the price of oil is reaching the highest level and it is increasing. The using of standalone diesel generation system is not practical because there is a limitation in generator’s operating hour and the lack of electricity will effect to the villagers’ daily routine and educational system. In applying renewable energy hybrid system, we need to know the optimum combination of hybrid energy system to reduce excess energy in minimizing cost of energy (C.O.E). This is because; single source renewable leads to component over sizing, which increases the operating and life cycle cost, but the combination of one or more resources of renewable energy that we called hybrid will improve load factors and help saving on maintenance and replacement costs as the renewable can complement each other. This research will review the hybrid system which are include PV (Photovoltaic), Pico hydro turbine, wind turbine, and also diesel generator, battery and inverter as backup and storage. A real time system for optimization process using HOMER (Hybrid Optimization Model for Electric Renewable). This software will help us to find the combination of components that can serve a load at the lowest life cycle cost which mean the cost of a system over its useful life. All of the costs which mean the cost of owning, operating, maintaining, and also replacing component will be in today’s Ringgit Malaysia. The data for remote area will get from Meteorology Department, so that, the comparison and options evaluation based on the demand load that exist in the remote area.
