Nowadays with global warming deeply affecting the climate of the world and increasing energy consumption combined with decreasing amounts of fossils fuels, a major change is required in the way the demand of energy consumption met. Global environmental concerns and the escalating demand for energy, along with ongoing progress in renewable energy technologies, are opening up new chances for utilization of renewable energy resources. Solar energy is the most abundant, inexhaustible and clean of all renewable energy resources till now. This study is to develop a solar patch antenna for wireless radio communications in rural area application. The design and integration of solar panel with fabricated patch antenna with 2.4GHz is presented. The patch antenna array with high gain is designed and expected to reduce the need of tower that almost requires high cost of construction. In order to achieve high gain, the proposed antenna is constructed by 2x2 octagon shaped patches fed by microstrip line corporate feeding network which is developed using a λ/4 quarter-wave impedance technique. The antenna structure is then developed on a Flame Retardant (FR) 4 Epoxy dielectric substrate which the thickness and dielectric constant of 1.6mm and 4.3, respectively. Some antenna parameters including return loss, voltage standing ratio (VSWR), radiation pattern and gain are characterized through simulation obtain an optimum design of antenna. While for the measurement, it shows that the characterized of solar patch antenna array meets the agreements with the design result in which the measured gain of 8.31dB at the center frequency with the return loss -23.64dB which corresponds to VSWR of 1.14 and bandwidth response of 90MHz ranges from frequency of 2.34GHz – 2.43GHz.
