This paper is about the design of a solar power system for an industrial unit in Lahore Punjab, Pakistan. A hybrid power system is designed in HOMER after collecting the site data and load profile The land requisition analysis has been done using the PVWatt software. The average load of consume is found to be 2485.6 kW and the peak load is 3257.7 kW. After the simulation, the system architecture is such that 8382 kW, ENN Solar Energy 480EST solar module-based array is required in a grid tied operation. For converting the DC to AC, 3119 kW Eaton Power Xpert inverter is needed. Overall, the initial cost of designed system is found to be $ 3080100.00. The proposed system reduces the cost of energy to $ 0.1020 per kWh, which provides good savings along with a renewable energy system. Design details and system simulation results are included in the paper.
