Abstract: Consumption of fossil fuel and its effect on the environment has become a major universal problem. It is therefore necessary to use renewable energy resources (RES) such as solar, wind, etc. to decrease dependency on conventional energy resources. Currently, solar rooftop PV hybrid energy systems are becoming popular to overcome with the disadvantages of conventional energy sources. This paper presents a simulation-based strategy with the help of HOMER software to control the optimum utilization of renewable hybrid energy system for private buildings where it helps to maximize the building’s renewable power ratio and minimizing complete net current costs and CO2 emissions so that it’s a viable solution to address to the power shortage and Greenhouse gas emissions. Finally, manual calculations measured with net-meter are being validated with HOMER software and the results are more accurate with a variation of 1%.
