What are the advantages of combining the technologies as opposed to using either one individually?
A combined wind and solar power system uses two energy sources with a variable output that depends on weather conditions, but they can achieve synergy if used together:
It is important to note that combined wind & solar systems require particular site conditions to be feasible. Solar power is available virtually everywhere, but the same can't be said of wind power. As a rule of thumb, a wind power system can be considered feasible if the capacity factor is higher tan 20%. Otherwise, the investment may increase unnecessarily with little or no added benefit. If wind speeds are not favorable, 100% solar is a better choice.
