In this paper, the photovoltaic panel were used to integrate the extraction of light energy and thermal energy. The need of this setup is to study the effect of thermoelectric cooling effect to remove the heat in photovoltaic. The experimental result were subsequently analyzed and compared with power generation efficiency of the examined photovoltaic. The use of thermoelectric cooling system improves the power capacity of the photovoltaic by 2% - 20% and enhance the power generation efficiency of photovoltaic by 2.29% -3.37% through the combined application of photovoltaic and thermal technologies, the total energy of the overall system can be improved by 37% -60%.
