In the context of increasing demand for energy and regarding the availability of conventional energy sources renewable plays a crucial role in nowadays, But we can’t assure continuous supply from these renewable as their performance totally depends on the weather conditions. So, in order to overcome these problems to some extent hybrid systems are used. This work addresses a new concept in a hybrid system i.e., the photovoltaic cells are placed on the wind blades. Thus, this model signifies the reduction in design, optimizes the cost, and to shows the new development in renewable. This paper explains darrieus model of vertical-axis wind turbines (VAWTs) accompanied by polycrystalline solar cells. This system is connected to 555 timer astable mode of operation of the boost converter and a protected model of charge controller for the battery. So, to exploit the energy efficiently by this hybrid model i.e. extract of solar energy from panels and wind energy from darrieus wind turbine at a time helps to meet the concept of uninterrupted supply on besides the discontinuity of nature. A small working model is also developed basing on this concept and it is performance curves of the wind and solar are obtained.
