This paper presents a customer's generation concept as one of the load management techniques. The use of the photovoltaic generator has a great advantage because of its ease of use and low maintenance requirements. Because the delivered photovoltaic Watt is very expensive, the photovoltaic system must be correctly and optimally dimensioned the proposed system in technical (feasible) and economical (lowest cost) term, it depends on several parameters such as orientation, tilt angle, type of modules. Among these parameters, tilt angle and module technologies are the ones have a significant impact on the PV system performance. In this study, three different technologies of PV generators with 5 kWp capacity each (Si-mono, Si-poly, Si-amorph) for Alger location in Algeria are simulated. PV generators have been mounted on a roof surface and positioned at different tilt angles ranging from 0° to 90°, in order to find the best configuration of PV generator to be installed in residential customer at house roof. Finally, the calculation of saving in energy as well as energy cost savings also carried out.
