There are four LDR which is set each in 45 o to keep tracking of the sun from sun rise to sun fall. As soon as the light falls on the first LDR, the signal will be sent to IC 89C51 microcontroller. This in turn controls the stepper motor position i.e. first quarter 0-45o. As the sun rises when the sun light fall on the second LDR i.e. second quarter 45-90o, automatically first LDR is put off and the second one gets on. The signal from the second LDR goes to the IC and in turn goes to the stepper motor to change its position, i.e. 45-90o. The same process goes on till the sun falls down. So we are able to track the sun continuously. The electric energy thus obtained from the solar cell goes to a storage cell / battery and it is stored. When this energy is
