Non-renewable energy sources generate severe problems for the environment and human health problems. In recent years, hybrid renewable systems that use more than one energy source to supply the power demands have attracted attention. This study set out to verify using a hybrid system to supply electricity demand in a considered stadium based on the data in northeastern Iran with an average wind speed and daily solar radiation. Furthermore, the feasibility of adding renewable energy sources to gain an economical and environmental power supply to secure the electricity demand of the considered area was discussed. The HOMER was used in this study to analyze and optimize hybrid power systems. This work focuses on energy supply via hybrid diesel, photovoltaic array, wind, battery, and converters. If proposed hybrid systems are used to supply energy-demanding, they would have low expenses and help significantly rise in utilizing the renewable energy system, providing economic and clean energy systems.
