The replacement of fossil fuels with renewable energy to sustain the life on Earth is one of the biggest challenges in recent days. The renewable energy resources are solar energy, wind energy, hydro power etc. Among these, solar energy transpires possible solution to defy this problem since sun is the most abundant and cheap energy resource. The development of solar cells for utilizing the solar energy. In this work, we have developed a prototype of compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) along with a solar panel produced about 5.86V (1.75W) of electricity in an hour. The light illuminates an electric bulb; it emits photons for 360° radius in all directions.180° illumination in all directions glow the bulb is enough for our use. Current invention focuses on conversion of light energy travelling upward direction to electric energy using photovoltaic cell. Light being commonly used energy about one third of electric power of world is being used for light energy. Storing the light energy emitted from the CF lambs using photovoltaic panel coupled with battery will not only save enormous about of energy spent on power generation, the stored electricity from this system can also be used for the functioning home appliances in case of power shutdown by replacing conventional model of inventor or UPS. This low cost approach of producing renewable electricity from the working light can be applied for other lamps to cut down the power expenditure.
