Solar energy is the only renewable energy that has swiftly acquired reputation and
relevance. We can create a large quantity of energy using the solar tracker, which
increases the efficiency of the solar panels. The effectiveness of the solar panel is due to its
parallel proportion with the sun's beams. Financially, its setup fee is expensive, especially
when cheaper alternatives are available. The planning and engineering method of a model
for a solar tracking system with a fixed dimension of flexibility are explained in detail in
this work. The NodeMcu microcontroller is used in the primary control circuit. The
programming of this system is done in such a way that the LDR sensor, in response to the
identification of sun rays, will guide the DC Motor in the position in which the solar panel
would rotate. The solar panel is then positioned in such a way that it receives the large
quantities of sun rays possible. Even though a boost in solar panel effectiveness resulted in
a significant gain in ineffectiveness, the ideal was still a long way off.
