In this work, the design project of a photovoltaic system to feed a house is shown, based on a demand study and its general characteristics, the available area for the assembly of the modules, the geographic location, and the meteorological data of the place. With this information, the relevant calculations were carried out to ensure that the installation provides the energy necessary to cover the consumption of the home and, also, delivers the excess energy to the grid. The PVsyst software was used to design the photovoltaic system. To check the advantages of implementing the photovoltaic arrangement, the benefit-cost relationship was evaluated, conducting an environmental impact analysis taking into account the reduction of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere and the tons of fossil fuel left to burn when generating electricity. With this power source, making it convenient to carry out the installation.
