In the recent years, dealing with many troubles together with energy crisis and environment degradation due to the increasing CO2 emission levels has grown to be the basically challenge to both developed and growing countries. The research work is proposed to carry on modelling and analysis of thermoelectric cooler (TEC) module contains a copper and Aluminium fins of long and short type. The innovative idea is to apply the solar energy input rather than D.C. electrical input power on thermoelectric module is going to be one of the most cost effective, clean and environment friendly system. Hence the purpose of this work is to identify the temperature and heat flux distribution on TEC modules of copper and Aluminium type of fins for a given solar electric power input supply conditions. Coefficient of performance of a TEC module is very low and the thermal designers have to think on to increase fin area and fan speed to improve its cooling capacity. However, the increase of fin area is restricted by the space. The variation in temperature and heat flux distribution effect on TEC module varies with increasing input current for Copper and Aluminium fins on cold reservoir.
