In Minnesota Juhl Energy is pioneering a new way to create highly efficient renewable energy farms. This is being done by pairing one or more wind turbines with a solar array. When it’s done like this only one inverter and one grid connection is needed which reduces equipment costs compared to doing two separate projects. The price of solar has dropped as well so that’s another reason why companies are looking to add it to their wind power projects. It’s a match made in heaven since the solar will be strong during the day and the wind will flex its muscles mainly at night.
