Depletion of fossil he1 resources in the world has need urgent search for alternative energy sources to meet curreilt demand. Solar energy is clean, resources are not inexhaustible and environmentally friendly potential among renewable energy options. The objectives of this study are to investigate the reliability of Sta~d-Alone Electric Solar System (ESS) and estimate ESS equipments specification that able to power up selected household electrical appliances. ESS generated electricity from solar energy as a source. The electricity will supply to a house with capacity 1600 Wh per day using ten solar panel photovoltaic and four battery bank. E ~ eSqu ipped by solar panel photovoltaic (95 Watt), solar charge controller, inverter, battery bank (12 V, 38 AH) and meter Power Quality Analyzer. The minimum loads required for a domestic house is 400 Wh. Data Logger is used to obtain the pattern of solar irradiation. The best performance of solar irradiation data is when on warm day. ESS equipped can produce energy 160 Wh using one solar panel (95 W) to store into one the battery bank (12 V, 38 AH). ESS specification to meet, it can be concluded that the Batu Pahat is reliable for ESS. This can be proved by the solar irradiation data and energy generated by ESS for home appliances purpose usage.
