The performance of 2.7 m2 Scheffler reflector has been studied. Scheffler Reflector is parabolic dish collector designed to collect energy from sunlight. In this System storage vessel was installed at focus point . Vessel stores 10 ltr of water for the purpose of experimentation. Tests were carried out with this set up for the purpose experimentation. Performance analysis of the reflector revealed that average power and efficiency in terms of water boiling tests to be 550 W and 19%. Maximum temperature of water was observed to be 940C. Ambient temperature was observed to be in between 32o C and 40 0C.
