In Pakistan has chosen seven areas to investigate the feasibility of developing a photovoltage plant system sources has become a major purpose in this research. The technical feasibility research of photovoltaic systems based on crystalline technology proposed with varying monitoring systems in terms of fixed, 1 axis, inclined axis, and two axes was analyzed utilizing PVGIS and the PV Watts software. The simulations comes about appeared that the performance of the 2-axis is superior in contrast to another tracking system. On the basis of standard parameters, the environmental and economic viewpoints of the proposed plant are analyzed. The technical performances acquired by means of PVGIS have been high performances compared to the results of PV Watts. During this research, different performance parameters were calculated, such as the annual production of photovoltaic energy, the annual radiation in plane, the photovoltaic capacity, the performance factor, the capacity factor. In additions, the Levelized cost of energy (LCOE) for the fixed inclination, 1-axis, inclined axis and 2-axes for the plants. PV plants for all areas were gotten within the extend of $0.178-$ 0.239 / kWh, $0.14 - $ 0.202 / kWh, $0.145 - $0.203 / kWh and, $0.133 - $ 0.191 / kWh, separately.
