Objective: To generate the energy with the help of conventional and non-conventional sources. Methods: Energy shortage is the major threat for economic development and Rural Electrification can improve the standard of a country. Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) gives a report about Uttarakhand and accordingly near about 123 numbers of villages are still not electrified due to shortage of transmission line, this problem can be solved by stand alone system. This paper is a best off grid hybrid system model with the help of HOMER software. Finding: This paper suggests the best Hybrid system for electricity production with the help of conventional and non-Conventional resources to assure the electrical needs of distant village, Dudhali in Uttarakhand state, and estimates the domestic, business, agriculture and small industries demand, and identify the best off-grid alternative. This paper presents issues which disturbing in understanding of the best explanation. Application: One of the most universal concerns of the utilities is to reduce the emission from habitual energy system by using non conventional sources and to decrease the cost of electricity supply to distant areas. Hybrid systems can provide a good solution for such problems because they integrate renewable energy along with the traditional power plants.
