The village of St. Brendan's, which formerly went by the name of Shoal Cove, is located in Bonavista Bay on Cottel Island in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. This community is cut out from a significant part of the province and must use a ferry to bring in the necessary resources to function correctly. One of the resources brought in is diesel used in operating the power plant to generate power for the community. When we combine the diesel consumed by the commercial ferry and the diesel consumed by the power plant, we know that this poses an expensive task and is detrimental to achieving the net zero goals. Proper use of renewable energy sources, particularly solar panels and wind turbines with diesel generators, could reduce diesel use. This paper will propose a site and an on-ground hybrid system will be designed and analyzed using Homer pro to help reduce the diesel consumption rate in the St. Brendan’s, NL, Canada community.
