The day to day increase in the atmospheric temperature leads to the need for better cooling as well as the energy systems. While considering the case of an automobile for example a car being parked outside in the sun, the temperature will gradually increase and humans cannot afford to be in such high temperatures. So for maintaining the ambient temperature inside the cabin the engine have to be operated just to provide the ambient temperature. Here the system implements an effective system to maintain an ambient temperature inside the cabin even when the engine is turned off. This utilizes the solar power extracted using a solar panel and given a separate storage space to power a system which controls the temperature inside the cabin. It utilizes the TEG (thermo electric generators) to provide the cooling inside the cabin. These TEG modules are given power supply from the solar energy extracted and the operation is controlled by a control circuit. Which senses the temperature inside the cabin continuously and TEG is operated whenever needed.
