The revolution to a more sustainable future has started in recent years, and it is important that this trend continues. The penetration of renewable energy systems (RES) in various locations and sizes has been encouraged by increasing energy demand from a growing population, as well as increasing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and depletion of fossil resources. As a result, the energy sector is undergoing a revolution from a centralised network of major, controlled power plants to a decentralised grid based on renewable energy resources (RER)s. Microgrids (MG)s are a fundamental component of this system for combining RES, controlled energy sources, flexible loads, and storage systems, whether grid-connected or island-connected. This study is regarding on the investigation on load demand of MG energy management system (EMS) at the rural area and the chosen site locations were Kg. Sukang Telidusun and Pulau Sepinong. Besides, the main objectives are to identify and evaluate the maximum energy supply to fulfil the load demand in current condition using Solar Hybrid and Rural Stations by conducting an analysis of data and to study on the volatility and intermittency of hybrid solar energy source based on the analytical data. The analysis was carried out by gathering relevant data and information from previous research, as well as visits to relevant places and areas. Several simulations were carried out in the HOMER Pro software, and a feasible MG system was designed and analysed to meet the residential’s and commercial’s load requirements. As a result, System A was selected as the ideal configuration because it fits all of the component criteria and is close to the real-world circumstance at the site, allowing the research to achieve its aim of meeting load demand while remaining simple. In addition, the potential of solar power's intermittent renewables to meet demand was discussed.
