Bifacial Solar Modules, Solar system, Industrial Sector.
Renewable energy has come to light as a crucial way to reduce carbon emissions and move toward a more sustainable energy future as the world struggles with the effects of climate change. In this context, the use of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems has become increasingly popular because of its cost-effectiveness, environmental friendliness, and technological innovation. In order to provide backup power for the industrial businesses in Harare, Zimbabwe, this thesis focuses on the design, simulation using PVsyst and PVSOL simulation softwares and installation of 230 modules of bifacial solar panels at Nyabira Solar Farm on a model plane open area of 0.4km as to give out a annual energy generation of 182885 kWh which on ground becomes a successful project when we install the panels at an free open space of 60km .Furthermore a comprehensive financial analysis shows a total installation of USD100000 which includes the prices of the inputs which are bifacial solar panel, inverters and the labour cost.
