Human beings have advanced in all aspects of life and have designed equipment that bear the potential to reduce manual work by using mechanisms wherein energy can be converted to work. However, these equipment largely depend on electrical energy for their operation. With technological advancement, numerous methods of generation of electrical energy have been in practice of which, extensive contemporary research is been conducted in the field of non conventional energy sources. These energy sources are generally renewable and can be considered perennial depending on the method of harnessing the energy. However, the key source of life on earth is the solar radiation. It is solar radiation that facilitates various forms of life on earth and ensures meeting of the energy demand. Various other conventional and non conventional energy sources depend directly or indirectly on solar radiation for their existence. Thus we can say that solar energy is the driving force of life on earth without which, everything will come to a standstill. However, there are rare events like eclipses that hinder the intensity of incoming solar radiation thereby disturbing the stability of the energy received by the earth. This paper shall consider six power generation methods using non conventional energy sources and the qualitative effect of a solar eclipse on the output of the same. For each case the basic working shall be explained after which, key factors affecting the working shall be put forward. Thereafter the qualitative effect of solar eclipse on the factors shall be discussed to draw a conclusion regarding the most affected and the least affected methods of power generation from non conventional energy sources in event of a solar eclipse.
