This study aims at developing a standard procedure for the design of a grid connected PV solar system for IIUC campus using rooftops of those building which are favorable to the sunlight and other system is car parks. Bangladesh is facing an acute shortage of energy. Natural gas is the main source of electricity generation in Bangladesh. But the limited gas reserves cannot fulfill the necessities of both domestic requirements and industrial and commercial demands, especially demands for electricity generation for long. Due to this shortage of electricity, not only we are facing load shedding across the country but also the industrial sector is badly affected. Since load shedding occurs, the campus faces so many problems due to absence of continuous power. To ensure continuous power supply, we have chosen solar power as our second way to fed power which will be grid connected. This will be beneficial way to make up the power crisis. A grid-connected photovoltaic power system will reduce the power bill of our campus as it is possible to sell surplus electricity produced to the local electricity supplier. These are comparatively easier to install as they do not require a battery system. Grid interconnection of photovoltaic (PV) power generation systems has the advantage of effective utilization of generated power because there are no storage losses involved. A photovoltaic power system is carbon negative over its lifespan, as any energy produced over and above that to build the panel initially offsets the need for burning fossil fuels. Even though the sun doesn't always shine, any installation gives a reasonably predictable average reduction in carbon consumption.
