Abstract: In the present modernized world, energy is the major prerequisite without which man cannot survive one of the most important sources of energy is solar energy. Solar energy is very abundant and everlasting when compared to all other energies. With prices of LPG elevating, the method of using paraboloid solar collector proves to be cost-effective and energy conserving. By focusing sun rays to a point, a huge amount of energy is harnessed which can be used for many purposes. This is one of the methods to harness solar energy among many others like PV cells and other solar reflectors. In light of the facts like the PV cells are only 32 efficient there is immense need for improvement in the area. The various concentrating solar panels also have limitations like focusing on a line rather than a point. In this paper, paraboloid reflector is used as one of the most effective instruments in harnessing solar energy. As the role of a reflector is the most important in a paraboloid concentrator, the major attention will be focused on it. Aluminum foil with and without the combination of mirrors, the difference is established and tabulated. A collector is located at Kurnool (Latitude 15.83oN, Longitude 78.05oE) Andhra Pradesh.
