Abstract: At present, either the standalone solar photovoltaic (PV) renewable energy system or the hybrid solar-wind power system with storage is one of the most powerful solutions for isolated bucolic areas, distant from utility grid. These papers analyze the analysis based of a stand-alone (SA) solar PV project on Mayurbhanj district in Odisha. A stand-alone PV system with 1.38 KWP is set up to generate electricity for local residents in the remote rural area. The meteorological data for Mayurbhanj has been taken for acquiring results generated for one complete year. Energy balancing, overall system energy utilization ratio and some performance factor and the energy consumption of complete PV system are estimated on monthly basis. Monitoring the long-term system evaluation makes the system to perform a detailed evaluation of the operating performances.
