The purpose of this study is to design a Photovoltaics (PV) stand-alone system for a residential load in Bunaken Island using HOMER (Hybrid Optimization of Multiple Energy Resources). Bunaken Island, the case study location, is a popular tourist spot in North Sulawesi, Indonesia. This island is facing the issue of limited access to electrical energy from the grid. The design and techno-economic analysis in Bunaken island leveraged HOMER software. This software was developed by National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). Furthermore, the results suggested that the techno-economical PV stand-alone system in Bunaken Island could be developed as alternative energy to support electricity as energy security issued for Indonesia.
