Energy crisis is the most important issue in today's world as demand for electrical energy increasing over the years. Conventional energy sources are not only limited but also hazardous to environment. Therefore, usage of non - conventional energy sources are getting more popula r to lessen the dependency over conventional energy sources. In the recent years, solar energy has been established as one of the chief non - conventional energy sources. Owing to the usage of solar energy, it has become necessary to develop some methods fo r the better use of solar energy. This paper presents one such resurgent method: Solar Position Tracking. A Arduino controller based method of solar tracking is presented in this paper. Light dependent resistors are used as sensors to determine the start a nd stop point of tracker. A small prototype of solar tracking system is also constructed to implement the design methodology
