Abstract

The first worldwide concern is \“global warming” which has increased rapidly, due to many factors; the most important is dependency on a fossil fuel to feed the demand for electricity, which contributes to increasing pollution in the ecosystem. So, using a renewable energy resource, such as solar energy as an option for electric power generators is something which can’t be overemphasized. The main purpose of this work is to study the feasibility of using solar energy application in Koya city to generate electricity. The approach used in this work is dependent mainly on statistical data and real life recorded data; these data being recorded for a period of one year. The experimental and analysis results show that a solar power generator system could be efficiently used to generate electricity, which is required to provide the domestic load in Koya city. Keywords: solar energy, environmental pollution, electric power generator, domestic load, photovoltaic system.
