Abstract: The photovoltaic (PV) technology has evolved over the years based on the three main challenges i.e. efficiency, longevity and cost. Till date, there had not been a precise solution to the negative effect of solar IR radiation on the longevity of PV panels. In this research, the bio-filter was synthesized to filter harmful solar radiation. Bio-filter is made up of metallic coated plant extract. The monocrystalline and polycrystalline PV panel were used to test the performance of the bio-filter. It was observed that the bio-filter optimized the current generation in the panel to about 3%.
