The energy received on Earth from the Sun is plentiful and renewable. Basically. the sun enabled life on our planet, and our life cannot be imagined without it. The sun is directly or indirectly at the origin for nearly all the energy resources on Earth, such as fossil fuels (coal. natural gas, and oil), hydro (global water circulation is due to the sun), wind, waves, biomass, etc. The sunlight was used as an energy resource already by ancient civilizations. Since I learned a lot of innovative technologies and advancements were performed in this field. The paper presents the main milestones of the developments performed in this important field of energy conversion. Even though the initial cost of setting up the solar panel system is considerably high because the solar cells are fragile and can easily break, there are cheaper options that have been proposed over time. This project discusses the design and construction of a prototype for a solar panel framework. Solar cells are used for sunlight detection. The solar panel is positioned where it can receive maximum light. Silicon solar cells produced an efficiency of 20% for the first time in 1985. Whereas there has been a steady increase in the efficiency of solar panels. the level is still not at its best. Most panels still operate at less than 40%. As a result, most people are forced to either purchase several panels to meet their energy demands or purchase single systems with large outputs. The solar panel framework was constructed by using solar cells from broken solar panels. In terms of cost, it is cheaper, less complex, and still achieves the required efficiency.
