Increasing power demand provokes the young minds to found alternative solution to generate power using various modes. Among the various method of conventional power generation, solar is a prominent energy source for generating power. But the availability of the same is possible only during the day time and is also affected by monsoon variations. An alternative effort to solve this problem is proposed in this paper using IR sensors. The IR sensor in a grid arrangement could be used for energizing the solar panel during the night time and even during the days of monsoon variations. This work analyzes the efficiency and driving capacity of the IR grid used for power generation. This paper also focuses on the alternatives to the IR sensor which is under the study for future development.
