The study aimed to design a solar tracking system mounted at a slope perpendicular to the sun's rays. It was equipped with a solar panel that absorbed sunlight falling directly on it. This research sought to produce electricity derived from the sun's rays. The electricity produced would be used in appliances to minimize the cost of energy consumption.

To establish the functionality of the device, experimental development and descriptive approach were applied through the assessment by purposively chosen evaluators.

The findings showed that the solar tracking device was effective and useful for human consumption. The device could be used as a power generator to meet the increasing energy demand.
