Abstract
Mountain houses prevail in Mediterranean region. Electricity costs are considerably high for these houses when they are located remotely from electric network. The development of photovoltaic (PV) solar cells has become a new prospect for electricity in mountain houses. In addition to mountain houses, PV system can also supply electricity for places located remotely from electric networks such as transmitting stations, highway sales points, nomadic communities and fields. In case of insufficient radiation, energy is supplied by a diesel generator. This study mainly focuses on planning, modelling and cost analysis of a hybrid system which will optimally supply electricity for a mountain house without an electricity network
