Abstract : The energy from the sun can be used to win the energy shortage generated by the scarcity of other resources of energy. Solar energy is green, free and found everywhere over the world. In addition to overcome the crisis happen due to shortage of generated power, solar power reduces the green house impact on the environment because it is clean energy. Not only this its operation period is also long and operation and maintenance cost is minimum once it is installed. This paper presents the load demand assessment of the rural area and designing of the solar power capacity that can generate the amount of power assessed from the house hold of the village. The methodology of the paper has been done by knowing the number house hold in the village then and asking their plan what they want to use if they electrified. Then depending on their plan the rating of the electric device rating is identified and the load is determined. Thus, Load demand assessment shows that the amount power required by the village is 25274KWh per day including five years forecast. The most important elements of solar power system that designed in this paper are Solar panel, charge controller, Battery bank and Converter. According to this design the number of the solar panel, charge controller, battery bank and converter needed to produce or generate the required power are 20155, 20162, 87752 and3761respectively. Lastly the designed solar system simulated on homer software to see that whether the amount power generated and demand of the customer meet each other. In this paper the implementation and cost analysis of the project is assumed to be the next phase as it is expressed under specific objectives.
