The project studies how Cantabria, an autonomous region in the north of Spain, would be able to change the way the region gets the energy for domestic consume with not renewable resources and the chance of changing it to a renewable energy with photovoltaic panels. The first idea was just supplying a quantity of megawatts, but my tutor Abel Nyamapfene thought it will be interesting if we think in another way, for example supplying the domestic energy use of my city, and then we thought about the autonomous region. A Matlab code has been done in order to extend the project to any other place, with just giving some data in the first steps and the amount of material and money will be displayed in the end of the code. The reason I am attracted by photovoltaic panels came from some years ago, when a project was being studied by my father. It was about building up a petrol station with solar panels. Panels will supply the station and the roof of the station will change its position, so that when you were taking petrol, you will be in the shadow. It was though for a place where the sun is really heavy.
