The aim of this working paper is to propose a design of an off-grid photovoltaic power system for a remote rural area called Khirbet Tana, east of BeitFurik, Nablus, Palestine. This work includes a literature review about the energy situation in Palestine, over view of PV systems and the solar power in Palestine. Khirbet Tana is a remote area, and as has been seen it doesn’t have a high population. Therefore, the proposed system covers the need for 14 families which it is about 100 person. The avg. solar radiation in Khirbet Tana will be considered as 5.60 kWh/m2/d and with peak sun hours of 5.40. They consume a load of about 23.2 kWh, the system has 42 PV modules. This proposed 8 KW PV system will cover the need of 14 families in Khirbet Tana. On an area of 72 m2. The system will cost about 16000 $.
