Electricity that produced by renewable energy sources are countinously increased, but some place in Indonesia have not utilize the renewable sources maximally, for instance Kolorai, South Morotai. Based on data from NASA, solar radiation in kolorai is around 5,99 kWh/m 2 /day, so solar power plant is one of solution to solve electricity needs in remote area like Kolorai. Futhermore, in solar power plant project, determining the load profile and designing the stand alone PV with simulation is important to make a great system. So the optimal methods are needed to build those system, the methods that have higher energy output, less excess energy, dan have a low Net Present Cost. In this paper, Australian/New Zealand standart and manual calculation are used to create an economical design. The result of the HOMER simulation shows that using Australian/New Zealand standart have a suitable result with excess electricity value is 8,56% and Net Present Cost is 1.439.160.000 rupiah.
