Abstract: This research focuses on ways to protect the photovoltaic solar panel from harmful radiation during harsh weather conditions. The bio-filter made up of copper coated hibiscus extract from methanol was proposed. It was discovered that the bio-filter was able stabilize the fluctuations and in some cases improved on the output of the PV panel. It was recommended that the onward study on this kind of bio-filter would enhance higher patronage of PV products in the African market.
