Abstract: In recent years the growth of photovoltaic technology (FV) worldwide has allowed reducing the emission of the greenhouse gases. This article presents a design, implementation and energy evaluation of 1 kW autonomous photovoltaic system installed in Bioparque La Reserva de Cota, Cundinamarca Colombia. The FV System generates 3,36 kWh/month, with represents an economic saving of (122.31 USD/year) and a CO2 reduction about 0.028 Tn/year, this value is equivalent to 2.9893 gallons of ACPM or 3.6523 gallons of gasoline. The results show that production costs and greenhouses gases emissions decrease, which means a contribution to mitigate the climatic change.

Keywords: climatic change, photovoltaic panel, renewable energy, solar energy, solar panel
