This work shows the design project of a photovoltaic system to power a home, based on a demand study and its general characteristics, the area available for the assembly was considered of the modules, the geographical location and the meteorological data of the place. With this information, the pertinent calculations were made to ensure that the installation provides the energy necessary to cover the consumption of the home and that it also delivers the surplus energy to the network. PVsyst software was used for the design of the photovoltaic system. To verify the advantages of the implementation of the photovoltaic arrangement, the benefit-cost ratio was evaluated, carrying out an environmental impact analysis taking into account the reduction of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere and the tons of fossil fuel stopped burning when generating electricity with This source of energy. It is convenient to install.
