This paper analyzes the performance of desert type photovoltaic 1.4 kWP grid connected plant. The system was installed in College of Engineering, Sultan Qaboos University, Oman and was monitored since April 2012. The experimental results show that the total measured annual energy produced was 2217.6 kWh with average system efficiency of 15% for the first year. The average capacity factor for the system was 17%.
