The source of electrical supply are diesel generators which release carbon dioxide (CO2) resulting in environmental pollution and it is costly too for domestic consumers in rural zones. So, the need of an hour is to improve and provide efficient energy supply for rural areas in present scenario. Hybrid Smart grid is an example of power system through distributed resources attending the whole community as an independent electrical island with the bulk power system. After knowing overall loads result for this selected load we simulate this data through HOMER (Hybrid Optimization Model for Electrical Renewable) tool. Using HOMER software, the goal is to maximize energy output with least cost of energy from distributed energy resources (DERs) by optimization. Each section of model performance will be evaluated and at different conditions, sensitivity analysis will be performed for optimizing the system
