Abstract: Solar energy is now accepted as an important source of renewable energy, thus real time information of a panel’s system becomes a major concern. This paper illustrates about the hardware and software execution of continuous wireless monitoring system for solar panel located in remote areas. XBee module is used as a wireless sensor network which is low power consumption device. Short time delay characteristics and simple to develop, low cost leads to high data reliability. The proposed system has a sending end and another one as receiving end. This system monitors the Solar Panel Temperature, Humidity, Panel Current and voltage, as well the power. At the receiving end, Xbee module receives the sensor data and sends it to the central system. Python language is used to stored continuous data in Postgre SQL database. The stored data in database can be observed in the Web Page through internet.
