Abstract

Some economical aspects of solar electrical systems are described in this paper and form the basis for comparison with some conventional systems. The equations presented here are given in a general form and can be applied directly by insertion of various cost factors. The comparison of the total annual costs of solar power packs (SPP) vis-a-vis conventional power packs (CPP) gives an adequate answer to the question of where, when and under which conditions, SPPs are more favorable. Inspite of the relative high costs of solar cells, nowadays, SPPs prove already to be economical in several cases both in Israel and elsewhere. These systems are relatively small with electrical energy supply up to 2. 5 or 3 kWh per day, and they are installed in remote places where conventional electric power is not available. Such systems are used to power microwave relay stations, communication facilities, battery charging, warning lights and buoys, illumination systems, water pumping, rust protection, etc.
