Solar energy is rapidly gaining popularity as an important means of expanding renewable energy resources. The main drawback of solar power generation is, it is limited to day light. To avoid such limitations this paper presents the concept of utilizing the solar power for day and night with effective solar tracking system for day time and molten salt technique for night time. Solar tracking allows more energy to be produced because the solar array is able to remain aligned to the sun. The solar tracking can be designed using microcontroller. Molten salts can store the sun's heat during the day and provide power at night.
