Solar energy is available in an amount and free, which is the best suitable alternative for non-renewable energy sources for variety of application, it is freely available everywhere in sufficient amount, making it one of the most promising, non-pollution sources. Coconut palm is a tree of life, in addition to its food value it has health, medicinal, and cosmetic value. Wet coconut oil (virgin coconut oil) is the oil made from the fresh coconut meat .This wet coconut oil method eliminates the use of solvent; it lowers the investment cost and energy requirement. This is the healthiest oil having more shelf life; therefore in this research coconut oil is produced by solar operated coconut oil extraction machine. In this research D.C. Motor is run by solar panel to crush the coconut. After crushing the coconut milk is obtained, this coconut milk is allowed to undergo fermentation process for some period of time. This fermentation process can be achieved by two ways such as natural and forced fermentation, after fermentation the obtained curd is heated with help of circular shaped parabolic dish collector and after filtering pure coconut oil is obtained.
