This project concerns how a solar panel system can be designed to take in more sunlight. The concept of using Fresnel lenses to focus more light onto a solar panel was tested, and turned out with positive results. Based on information from the data analysis, a solar panel system was designed. At a general description, the system is made from cells of Fresnel lens over solar panels, to form a big panel, which follows the sun. There is the problem that Fresnel lens cannot focus scattered light, but with more research, one day this design could make the future sunnier.
