    i called the gentlemen at the ABSAlaskan store and talked to them about a combo system of wind and solar set up and they said it can be done in the area along with keeping a small back up generator unit for use as need if there is no wind blowing or solar sun light ..

    he did say that the area is better for wind power for the production of power by a wind system in the area of the channel island area dureing the winter time and summer time is better for solar power ..

    There are a whole passel of places called "Cannel Island" in alaska. I can think of four or five just in southeastern alaska. Each location will be different. Solar will be problematic for Power Production during the winter months and more so, the farther NORTH you go. During the summer, it is exactly the opposite, as the farther NORTH you go the closer to 24 Hour Sunshine you get, No Clouds Permitting....
