Abstract:
This research aims to calculate the electricity generated from solar energy in Ratahan District, North Sulawesi from 100 kW of an on-grid PV system.. Indonesia. The calculation was conducted by using HOMER 2.68 Beta. The required data for the calculation were the profile of daily electricity consumption in one of the villages in Ratahan district which was obtained from previous study and the monthly average radiation data which was acquired from NASA Surface Meteorology and Solar Energy. By the analysis using HOMER 2.68 Beta, it was found that a 100 kW on-grid PV system can produce electricity as much as168.817 kWh/year.
