being considered in the Nigerian national assembly in order to mitigate the menace of environmental pollution and facilitate the development of power sector. This attempt to restrict the use of fossil fuels for environmental reason should not be allowed to have a negative impact on economic development. It is therefore important that the attention should be shifted toward utilizing the abundant solar energy available in Nigeria to argument the existing hydro power plants, especially for domestic purposes. This paper provides a succinct procedural approach to the implementation of a typical domestic solar PV project. A load audit of a standard two-bedroom apartment and detailed design of the various components of the solar PV system are included in this work. The result obtained shows that the two bedroom apartment considered requires six 200 w solar modules, four 200 Ah battery bank, 60 A charge controller and 2.5kVA inverter to provide electric power for eight hours. It is therefore recommended that professionals should be involved in the design and implementation of solar power system so as to derive the maximum efficiency and reliability of the system.
