This paper presents an efficient meshless approach for solving electrostatic problems. This novel approach is based on combination of radial basis functions-based meshless unsymmetric collocation method with projection domain decomposition method. Under this new method, we just need to solve a Steklov-Poincare interface equation and the original problem is solved by computing a series of independent sub-problems. An electrostatic problem is used as an example to illustrate the application of the proposed approach. Numerical results that demonstrate the accuracy and efficiency of the method are stated.
