This paper presents an optimal operation of Photo-voltaic (PV) system based Shunt Active Filter (PV-SAF) for harmonic mitigation and reactive power compensation. When the PV system generates excessive or equal power required to the load demand, then the coordinating logic disconnecting the service grid from the load and reduce of panel tariff and global warming gasses. The PV module is connected to the DC side of SAF through the DC-DC converter with fuzzy based Perturb & Observe (P&O) Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) algorithm to eliminate the drawback of the conventional PV system. The reference currents extract by the Fuzzy logic controller based PQ control strategy. This proposed PV-SAF, if connected at the terminals of a small industry or a home or a small enlightening institution can avoid the use of interruptible power supply and individual stabilizer. A MATLAB simulink is presented to validate the advantage of the proposed system
