FEASIBILITY STUDY OF HYDROKINETIC AND PHOTOVOLTAIC SYSTEMS FOR A RESIDENTIAL BUILDING IN MOLINE, IL.
MidAmerican Energy Company is currently investing in enough wind capacity to generate 90% of their retail customers annual energy consumption, but their vision of sourcing 100% renewable energy will also require the installation of private power generation systems. This study investigates renewable energy technology options that can be viably installed at a residential river-front property in Moline, IL to offset one residential building's electrical energy consumption and to charge an electric vehicle. The outcomes of this study compare the cost and estimated annual power generations of installing a hydrokinetic turbine, a solar PV system, and the combination of these two systems.
