Nowadays we can see the development of technology rapidly increased in order to fullfill the needs of world community. Despite the rapid of this development, it required a large energy source. The most energy source that have been used around the world was fossil fuel. Energy source are divide into two categories, renewable energy and non-renewable energy. Renewable energy is the energy source that can be use continuously without limit, such as solar energy from the sun, hydropower from flowing water, wind energy, biomass from plants, and geothermal energy from heat inside the earth. Non-renewable energy is the energy source that is used for a certain period, depends on its availability and they cannot easily replenished, like fossil fuel such as petroleum product, hydrocarbon gas liquids, natural gases, coal and so on. Renewable energy and non-renewable energy sources usually act as primary energy source to produce other energy such as heat or secondary energy source such as electricity [1]. Malaysia has high potential to build a large scale of solar power due to strategic location at the equatorial region. Malaysia's climate has relatively high levels of temperature and humidity. Throughout the year, the temperature ranges between 22˚C and 33 ˚C (72-91˚F) and the average daily temperature is 26.5˚C. Averaging 4.96 kWh/m² annual solar irradiance and with the range of 4.8 to 6.3kWh/m² irradiance monthly except for December due to the monsoon season ...
