We want to highlight the importance and necessity of using clean energy sources in Iraq, especially in rural and desert areas. After the increase in companies that produce solar cells, led to cheaper prices and increased efficiency by the manufacturers. In this paper, we present a study that is a good example of the amount of wasted and unfortunately underutilized solar energy. By collecting weather and environmental data for the Al-Rifai area and studying it through the use of the HOMER energy program, we want to propose a solution to stop the migration of farmers from the countryside to the city by supporting clean and cheap energy projects, overcoming the prevailing unemployment and increasing agricultural production.  We took an example here of desert land with an area of 100 acres in the city of Al-Rifai in southern Iraq, which suffers from the phenomenon of drought and the migration of farmers to nearby cities, and we found it is possible to produce energy in this place at a very cheap cost (0.0119 $/kWh).
