This paper introduces a communication system model with renewable power supply. As we assumed a battery-free microgrid system with conventional power as a backup power supply, we propose a method of power state and data transmission scheduling for delay-tolerant communication networks, which reduces conventional power consumption by operating adaptively to changes in renewable power. We found through computer simulations that the proposed method efficiently reduced conventional power consumption.
