Electricity has become a very important needs for human life today and one of the parameters in one region condition. Nowadays, the dependence on fossil fuels to fulfill the electricity needs is really worrying, and it causes the depletion of fossil fuels. Today, the whole world is paying more attention to renewable energy as one of the best solution to solve the future energy problems. Renewable energy becomes the best solution because it will not be exhausted and enviromentally friendly. In the other hand, renewable energy also have problem, because it cannot produce energy everytime like photovoltaics which can produce energy only when there is enough solar radiation. Therefore, a hybrid system is made that expected to minimize the weakness from other components of the system. In this project, a hyrid system is designed using HOMER PRO software to calculate the electricity and economic factor of the hybrid system. The objective of this project is to find the best hybrid system that can solve the electricity problems. The system will be independent since grid function will replaced by fuel cell in the 19th year based on the assumption.
