Photo-thermal solar energy device was constructed using local available materials for producing hot water for house hold uses. The motivation for this research is to find an alternative source of power for this purpose, since we have epileptic supply of conventional power in the country. It was observed that intensity of solar radiation varies with time and the temperature of water produced depended on the amount of solar radiation and the time of the day as observed from the graphs plotted. We obtained boiling water at 100 degrees Celsius with the device at Covenant University, Ota, Ogun State. Nigeria.
