In wireless sensor networks, the sensor nodes are deployed in areas like hills, or under water to monitor certain conditions where human approach is bit difficult. These nodes are generally required to send the sensed data to the base station or the sink node. The nodes, which are, deployed near the sink node relay much more data than the other nodes. The result is that these nodes drain out energy more quickly than other nodes and die out soon. This creates energy hole in the network. This paper represents energy harvesting scheme that allows the nodes (running out of battery) to quickly shift the path containing high-energy nodes. The proposed technique selects the nodes based on high priority decided by number of neighbors, remaining energy, and distance to the base station. The proposed scheme shows improvement in terms of amount of energy harvested, delay, throughput and routing overhead.
