  author={Manisha Joshi and Sushil Salins and Parag Wadhwa and Ronit Hasija and Dhiraj Singh},
The proposed paper presents a system where the street lights are powered by the energy harnessed by the single axis solar tracker. This system is also equipped with a Street Light Energy Saver which is designed to save energy by turning off selected streetlights late at night when traffic volume is low and manual work of switching it on and off is eliminated. It is as simple to program as an alarm clock and it also conserves more energy than a PIR sensor. Thus by using this system, solar energy…
