In this paper, the technical and economic feasibility of innovative renewable energy systems, solar wind hybrid power generation capability is provided for collecting rainwater. Part of the energy required for tall buildings where the system is installed it provides. The system is compact and can be built on top of tall buildings and the construction of renewable energy required in the space provided. PAGV shape and appearance of the surrounding wind turbines can be combined with the architecture of the building and no negative impact on demand. (Part of the building). This design improves the starting behavior of wind turbines. Also for the people around safer and reduces noise pollution. Technical and economic analysis was conducted using life cycle cost. (LCC) LCC method, taking into account the full range of costs and cash flow of time makes the cost equation. Evaluations show that for a PAVG (with a diameter of 30 m and height 14 m) and wind turbine rotor vertical H- axis (diameter 17 mm and a height of 9 m) mounted on top of the building with 60 meters high, the estimated energy savings annual 195.2mwh/year.
