This paper presents a photovoltaic (PV) system for lighting load of a small farm in Khon Kaen province, THAILAND. PV energy production was estimated through outdoor experimentation of a PV module at latitude 16°26’N longitude 102°49’E. The standalone PV system with battery to supply lighting loads in a small farm was designed considered two types of light bulbs, LEDs and compact fluorescent (CFL). Information is useful for PV design for small animal farm, agriculture and energy saving applications.
