This research study focuses on providing affordable renewable energy for rural communities without electricity in northern Nigeria using a microcontroller to control its operation. The pivotal control circuit is the Arduino UNO microcontroller, which is connected to the circuit through programming. The main task of the system is to give commands to the system with the help of the relay at its time of operation. The solar panel is connected to the grid for the community, using the inverter that converts the generated DC to AC. The main objective of my project is to provide electricity at an affordable rate through renewable energy, thereby bridging the gap of lack of electricity in northern Nigeria. My project tends to provide an economic solution to the public and improve sustainability.
Keywords: Microcontroller, Renewable Energy, Arduino Uno Atmega328p, Electricity.
