Solar photovoltaic technology is continuously growing. It is providing benefits to, not only environment friendly people as a clean source of energy but it also became economically, a profitable source of energy. It is happening because of decreasing prices of Photovoltaic and mainly government's incentives. This feasibility study provides solar PV users to carry out the triple 'e' (energetic, economic, and environmental) analysis for building integrated systems. A number of examples have been introduced within this work as a means of facilitating the above-mentioned design and analysis process. This research work consist into two projects; one is feasibility study for Solas Scotland Group in which solar data for 13 sides gathered and processed to find out PV output on different aspect angles and slopes for those locations. Second is a feasibility study for FHC (Fairfield Housing Corporation), in which shading analysis assessment of three potential properties located in close proximity to FHC office has been done and a property has been selected for PV installation. This study also proposes a triple-string installation with 14 modules in each string. The total number of modules thus required would be 42. It is also recommended that three, 4kW inverters are used, one for each string.
