Photovoltaic solar energy is a clean renewable energy source that allows obtaining electricity directly from solar radiation through semiconductor devices called photovoltaic cells. The present research aims to pre-design an isolated system for a house that can serve as a pattern for the electrification of houses that today do not have power in the province of Manabí. To carry out the proposal, the PVsyst was used, a tool for sizing the system, in addition to the bibliographic review, the qualitative-quantitative, and the inductive deductive. It was obtained as a result that photovoltaic solar energy is adequate to provide a solution to isolated homes that today do not have energy service, in addition to those that have a poor quality of service.
