PV provides a suitable energy source for remote (either cold or more temperate) regions with no other electricity source. For example, photovoltaic systems can be used to supply electricity for:
- telecommunication repeater stations
- water pumps
- navigational aids
- laptop computers
- cottages and remote residences
- parks in remote regions
- supplying occasional power
Case studies are also available on the RETScreen International Website and on the Canadian Solar Industries Association (CanSIA) Website .
Other examples of stand-alone PV systems around the world are available at the RETScreen International Website and at the lnternational Energy Agency Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme Website .
