A green or zero energy building is a building that produces as much energy as it consumes on an annual basis analysis. Smart Grid is a network created through information technology, communication technology and electrical power system. It is simply a “smarter” power grid which ensures a two-way communication between user and the power supplier. It mainly takes into consideration the renewable energy resources for its operation. The study in this paper is handled to convert summer home to a green energy building reducing electricity consumption and to gain profits from selling back electricity to the grid. Summer Home is occupied from two to three months only in the year. The paper proposes a smart micro grid design in a summer home in the Egyptian North Coast using solar PV panels, wind turbines. HOMER software is used for simulation and optimization of the hybrid power plant including the cost aspects for various loads throughout one complete year.
