A few months ago the problem of instability electricity supply emerge again in Indonesia especially in some cities in West Sumatra region. The generators could not feed their proper electricity supply because of the dry season and the lack of water supply. In August 14,2003 some USA’s big cities like New York, Detroit, Boston, Cleveland and Toronto in Canada suffered from the longest black out in their history of electricity supply. Meanwhile buildings with PV solar electricity support still could do their function uninterrupted. In comparison, the problems of electricity supply and demand in urban/city area are bigger than similar problem in rural area. The constant increase of population and building density are some reasons of the high increase of electricity demand in cities. Sometimes the public service authority cannot fulfil this demand. The black out case in USA and Canada has proven that the use of PV solar electricity in buildings is very useful and safe. It shows also that the integration of the PV technology in buildings is already well known and dependable. It could cut the daily peak electricity demand in big cities and could function as a supporting sub system in the whole electricity supply system in these cities. This paper will discuss the use of PV system in buildings and its electricity product calculation in a very simple way to help architect. It will use some climate data for Jakarta. The calculation will illustrate the mean electricity product for Jakarta in different year seasons and the comparison of using PV electricity in some office buildings.
