  author={Pooja K. Chhatwani and Jayashree S. Somani},
Solar energy is becoming increasingly attractive as we grapple with global climate changes. However, while solar energy is free, non-polluting, and inexhaustible, solar panels are fixed. As such, they cannot take advantage of maximum sunlight as weather conditions and seasons change. A solar panel receives the most sunlight when it is perpendicular to the sun's rays, but the sunlight direction changes regularly with changing seasons and weather. Currently, most solar panels are fixed, i.e., the…
