This paper is directed to simulate, analyze and assess different off-grid renewable supply options to feed a proposed passenger services station on Al-Nafud dessert / Saudi Arabia. The results show that wind only and off-grid hybrid wind/PV schemes are technically visible and economically vital. Stand-alone wind energy scenario becomes the most preferable option; having the lowest NPC, if diesel price is increased to 0.3$/l. Moreover, the utilization of such renewable energy supply option will eliminate great amount of gas emissions produced by diesel generator.
