This paper presents analysis studies of solar energy harvesting potential in Ulu Pauh, Perlis, Malaysia which located at 6.462°N, 100.351°E. Solar radiation is radiant energy received from the sun, from both direct and diffuse or reflected sunlight. In average of the year, Perlis able to receive about half day of solar radiation regardless the reflectivity. Perlis is northern state of Peninsular Malaysia and known as hottest state in Malaysia with the average 12 hours of sunlight received per day. The discussion in this paper also includes several factor and parameter in the solar energy collecting potential analysis. The analysis studies had updated for last six month in year 2011. The potential of receiving solar radiation at 6.462°N, 100.351°E is compared to 6.431°N, 100.185°E with support by recorded data using Davis Vantage Pro2 Weather Station. All the data used in this paper are live record for the past six month which used for ongoing research on solar and wind energy. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
