In view of the many problems such as air pollutions, global warming, nuclear risks, energy crisis and many others associated with the currently available exhaustible energy forms; it is therefore only logical to look for alternatives. Energy from the sun, be it in direct or indirect form such as the wind energy, are getting more recognized in terms of its capabilities in providing sources for electricity generation in many parts of the world. In Sarawak, however, these forms of alternatives have yet to gain much use even in the less densely populated area. These mostly rural areas are disconnected from the national grid and therefore rely mainly on diesel generators for electricity generation. As such, this study will attempt to determine the feasibility of these alternative energies for electricity generation in one such area, Teluk Melano. Teluk Melano is located in the Lundu district of Sarawak. The village consists of 50 houses, a primary school and a police station. An energy consumption study of Teluk Melano has been carried out before sizing of a photovoltaic system and a wind turbine system can begin. The results of this study suggested that a large-scale electricity generator system is required in order to provide electrification by means of alternative energy.
