Feasibility Study of Solar Power System in Residential Area
  The present paper studied the feasibility of solar power system in the residential area in Kuching. Generally, the solar power system described in this paper is defined as a small-scale photovoltaic (PV) based system that can be installed within a housing compound or on the rooftop to generate sufficient power to support a household daily electricity usage. The required data was collected at the residential area at Sekama, Kuching by using two methods, which are an analytical and experimental method. Later, the acquired data obtained from the two methods used were converted in term of solar irradiation. Besides, analyses were carried out for the solar power system in terms of the potential, capacity and economic feasibility of the solar PV system. Overall, the solar PV system is found to be feasible to be installed in the residential area.
