Fossil fuels’ rapid depletion and need to protect the environment has left us to think upon alternatives and solutions to curb the excess use of conventional sources and shift focus on the renewable energy. In this paper we have designed a prototype model inclusive of techniques that support the need to harness the solar energy. MAXIMUM Power Point Tracking is a technique that Grid Tie Inverters, Solar Battery Chargers, and other similar devices use to get the maximum possible power from one or more solar panels. Solar cells have a complex relationship between solar irradiation, temperature and total resistance that produces a non – linear I – V curve.
