Development of Renewable Energy System (RES) in Indonesia is an alternative solution for an increasing of fuel-based energy demand problem. Higher educational institutes may contribute to reducing the energy consumption by implementing green campus policies which include creating a medium-scale solar power installation. The research presents the feasibility analysis of photovoltaic power generation plants development in a university in the southern part of Java Island, Indonesia. In this article, different on/off-grid photovoltaic systems were considered in one of the campuses located in rural area. The technical viability of the proposed solar energy system is analyzed using HOMER software. The economic aspects of the plant are analyzed based on standard parameters, the NPC (Net Present Cost) and IRR (Internal Rate of Return) methods. The simulation studies are carried out to identify technical and cost-effective configuration. Feasibility study of the Photovoltaic energy generation was conducted by revealing their potential contributions and applicabilities. This study gives emphasis to the techno-economic analysis of renovating the energy supply system of a grid-connected large office building through an RES. Finally, results of the research can be used as the preference for the relevant stakeholders and policymakers in developing the grid-connected RES system.
