Renewable energy generation has become the choice of many countries, including Indonesia. New and Renewable Energy (EBT) generators in Indonesia are Solar Power Plants (PLTS). Not only targeting people who are not reached by alternative distribution networks, but the PLTS system is a necessity for public facilities and is communal in nature in Indonesia. Gorontalo City is part of Gorontalo Province a province which has an area that occupies part of the northern region of Sulawesi Island with various regional characteristics, ranging from coastal areas to mountainous areas, where several areas in this province have an attraction for investors to invest in the industrial and commercial sectors commercial. In addition, the unequal distribution of energy infrastructure is an energy problem faced by Gorontalo City. The research and modelling method in this study uses the Photovoltaic System Software (Pvsyst) application by conducting a survey of the research location for planning the installation of a Rooftop Solar Power Plant (PLTS) to determine the condition of the building, the geographical location of the research location. From the simulation results using the PVsyst Ichsan Gorontalo University Building using a standalone system with a PV array of 1261 units with a total Pnom of 328 kWp, for battery technology, namely lithium-ion, 925 LCO units produce a voltage of 241V with a current capacity of 9990Ah. Produces energy per year of 513619 kWh/yr with a ratio of 70.36% where the active load is 13 hours/day.
