Affordable housing is often associated with low-cost housing that pays lack of attention to the principle of sustainable housing. It is due to having limited price which meet the decree of Minister of Public Works and Public Housing No.552/KPTS/M/2016. However, the application of solar panels in the affordable housing has potential of cost efficiency by replacing the cost of monthly electricity payment with the initial investment and maintenance cost of a solar panel network in the housing. The potential of electricity power in Parung Panjang housing is calculated by applying spatial analysis using GIS. Parung Panjang housing has the total area of 214,1 hectares. The results of spatial analysis showed that the potential of roofs that can be used for solar panel installation is 44,6 hectares. By managing that area and electricity payments, the potential for solar cost of energy is 929.14 IDR/kWh. It is lower than the cost of energy from State Electricity Company of 1,352 IDR/kWh. Besides, the implementation of solar energy in large residential area is more efficient than in a single house and small area.
