One of the common problems faced by Telecommunication (TLC) companies is the lack of power supply, usually for those appliances with scarce chances of grid connection often placed in remote zones. This issue is more and more critical if the radio network has the specific task of guaranteeing the so-called "mission-critical communications". This manuscript aims to propose and assess a viable solution to optimize the power supply and maintenance operations required to assure the proper

In particular, the main goals are defining a method to select the critical sites in an extensive and composite radio system and designing the hybrid power system in a way to improve the service availability and technical-economic benefits of the whole mission-critical TLC system. Finally, the proposed method and related procedures are tested and validated in a real scenario.
