Abstract—In the development of energy sources in remote regions in Jordan at the brink of the 21st century, it is necessary to view the use of solar energy in all applications as one of the most promising new and renewable energy sources. As a contribution to the development program of remote areas in Jordan Badia, this paper presents two energy supply alternatives for a remote house represented in photovoltaic system and diesel generator for providing the electrical loads in a family house according to their energy requirements. The result of this study shows that remote households in Jordan Badia will require 3.22kWh/day or 1175kWh/yr to meet their basic power requirements for such loads as lighting and electronic appliances-radios and televisions. It is found that providing electricity to a family house in a remote zone using photovoltaic systems is very beneficial and competitive with the other types of conventional energy sources, especially considering the decreasing prices of these systems and their increasing efficiencies and reliability. They have also the advantage of maintaining a clean environment. It is recommended that solar photovoltaic-based rural home electrification application should be encouraged by the government, especially for those rural households without access to a grid supply.
