This  article  aims  to  present  a  study  on  the  applicability  of  isolated  photovoltaic  systems.  Therefore,  it  was
necessary  to  conduct an  economic  feasibility  analysis  through  a  basic dimensioning  of  a photovoltaic  power
system,  using as basis a residence located in the Serra Catarinense. This discussion was based on studies of
Cabral et al (2013), Serrão  (2010), and Vasconcelos (2013). The methodology was qualitative and quantitative
by analyzing the incidence of solar radiation  in Brazil and especially in the region of Serra of Santa Catarina,
main focus of the study. This research showed that the main factor that makes this application unfeasible is the
lack of incentives from the government, while European countries apply publ ic policies with tax incentives for
the implementation of sustainable energy, such as solar, the Brazil begins to crawl with regulations for the use
of solar energy. Although still very low in Brazil, it is believed that in the future, this source can be e xplored and
better utilized, since solar power is viable in some regions of Brazil even with the high cost of implementation.
In relation to social and ecological aspect, this energy source can reduce the overhead on the electric system,
and thus reduces energy dependence on fossil fuels, as well as being a clean source that does not emit gases that
damage the ozone layer.
