Most of the electricity in India comes from fossil-fuels like coal, oil and natural gas. Today the demand of electricity in India is increasing and is already more than the production of electricity where as the reserves of the fossil-fuel are depleting every day. We can feel this fact from the electricity-cuts during summer. Luckily Sun throws so much energy over India, that if we can trap few minutes of solar energy falling over India we can provide India with electricity for whole year. Most parts of India get 7 KWH/ sq.-meter of energy per day averaged over a year.

The purpose of the project is to implement a system to continuously track the sun rays with the help of the solar panel and grasping the maximum power from the sun by rotating the solar panel according to the sun rays direction with respect to time.

In present situation everyone is facing the problem with power cuts which is creating very much trouble to the people. So, to solve this problem we have a solution that is sun. Yes by using sun radiation we can get power i.e., the solar energy using which we generate the power. All we are know that there are so many renewable energy sources like solar, wind, geothermal etc. but solar energy system is very simple and easy to implement. But the main drawback of the solar system is it is very poor efficient system. By using this project we are going to improve the efficiency of solar system.
