Solar power is one of the most important renewable energy resource because it is sustainable and reliable. It has some drawbacks that need to be worked upon, the major one is variation of temperature and illumination that affects the output of solar panel. This project uses solar tracker along with the temperature alert system. Solar tracking system helps panel to produce optimum power for more time by proper orientation and Temperature alert system allows the panel to work under favorable temperature conditions. In order to accomplish this, a microcontroller is suitably programmed to compare the illumination of LDRs and rotate the panel in the direction of sun by stepper motor.
