Reduction of heat build-up of a solar panel operating under hot temperature is one of the main development researches in solar panel community at the moment. By reducing the operating temperature of a solar panel, the performance output would be increased. The main objective of this study is to establish relevant knowledge on the baseline data of solar panel operating under normal operation and the effect of using water film on a solar panel. Several testing conducted during this study to measure the ability of water as a coolant to cool down the temperature of an operating solar panel. Fabrications for the solar panel testing are made such as water dam installation, and adjustable hinge platform. Several equipments was used namely solarimeter for solar insolation readings, multimeter for manual voltage readings, solar panels, data logger, temperature sensors and other equipments for fabricating purposes. The results obtained show that with water flowing on the panel, open circuit voltage VOC increases. Thus, it can be concluded through this project that performance of solar panel can be increased with the use of water cooling
