Among various alternative sources of energy solar power stands out as most important renewable source for our energy requirements. Its availability in abundance and negligible environmental impact makes it ideal to incorporate into the energy grid and curb pollutants from the depleting fossil fuels.

Internet of Things reimagines the concept of networks, introducing a new construct of interconnected physical devices, vehicles, and appliances. This paper illustrates the implementation of an IOT-based solution for solar power harvesting and exemplary utilization of harvested power.
