Abstract: Renewable energy sources are integral part of the present energy system because of the various problems, associated with conventional energy sources. Solar and wind are the major renewable energy sources. The renewable energy sources are sufficient enough to meet the world energy requirement. In this paper, a comprehensive analysis on energy output calculation of the photo-voltaic (PV) system is presented. The solar radiation effect is articulated based on monthly average sun shine hours. After local area solar potential is assessed, small plant is developed and designed for EEU building electric power supply, which is connected to the grid. Therefore, there is huge reduction in grid supply demand. The study uses different metrological data and simulates the grid connected PV technologies to end users, for decision making in PV energy investment. Performance ratio and specific energy is calculated as indicator for the plant feasibility in the area.
