Authors(5) :-K. Siva Shankar, G. Joga Rao, M. K. Sarat Sahithi Naveen G, J. Aparanjitha, K. Sai Charan Rajesh

A Smart solar charging meter is designed so that other devices can be charged outdoors and eco-friendly. This system converts solar energy into electricity and stores in a battery bank. The purpose of this project is to design and develop a proof of concept of solar charging station capable of delivering power. This project will further reduce our dependence on fossil fuels as a means to generate electricity. By using this system, we can charge devices without drawing power from the grid; it will be able to reduce some of the demand for energy resulting in less fuel used to generate electricity overtime. The main feature of this project will be to measure the voltage, current, power and we can also generate bill for the solar energy used is displayed on LCD display. In this project we are designing the meter using ARDUNO (AT MEGA 328P), ACS712, LM317. Not only we want a successful project, but we also want to make sure it is ethical and safe for all.
