Solar Photovoltaic (SPV) power generation system is becoming a popular and alternative technology to full fill the requirement of household electric power. The operation and maintenance cost of a typical SPV power generation system is too low at the household level, whereas the initial investment or installation cost of such systems is comparatively too high. Although the SPV power generation system uses free and renewable energy to generate eco-friendly electricity, due to the high initial investment, slow response of service assistance for technical support during the system failure, maintenance, troubleshooting, lack of basic troubleshooting and maintenance knowledge of the end-users are some of the primary reasons for reducing the popularity and faith on SPV power generation technology in the household level. In this paper, an elaborate explanation of design, installation, commissioning, maintenance, and troubleshooting methods have been briefly described to set up an indigenous and cost-effective solar photovoltaic power generation system to meet the electricity demand for basic household requirements with an individual effort.
