Due to the technological advancement and population and explosion, the world’s demand for energy has a rapid growth. So a renewable energy source that is cost-effective, reliable and everlasting must be opted to meet the future energy demands. There are many renewable energy sources out of which solar energy is free of cost. It is also suitable for long-term issues. Due to energy’s high demand, the solar industry is developing all over the world. Many other energy sources like fossil fuel are expensive and also have limited applications. It has become a tool to sustain the underprivileged people’s life. It also has a great part in developing in the economic status of various countries. Solar industry is the best energy source than other energy sources and a solution to meet the future energy demands as it has various benefits. The various benefits include capacity, cost-effectiveness, accessibility, availability and efficiency.  Based on the interest and above view point researcher selected the area of solar energy. This paper on “Designing and Evaluating the Performance of Solar Powered Iron Box” briefly describes the design and performance of the solar powered iron box. A study was conducted in Coimbatore city among four hundred samples using interview schedule for which questionnaire was developed which entailed socio-demographic profile of the participants, solar devices used by them, limitations faced, other device they would like to have operated on solar power etc. During the study it was revealed that majority of participants opted for solar powered device
