A lot is being talked about renewable energy, green energy, energy which is sustainable and inexpensive. The highlight in the 21st century has been the advent of growing energy needs, as our world continues to grow the need to conserve and effectively use our resources is tracing an exponential path. Current set ups in industry and residential premises are bringing rain water harvesting into their design, but they are leaving another source of energy whose potential is as enormous as the size of our universe, light. Daylight harvesting is an age old concept and can be traced down in history as it is embedded in the architecture of ancient civilizations. However our focus is to bring the limelight to a new, effective, and inexpensive and result driven method which will harvest daylight in real time and will eventually lead to thermal and visual comfort
