A novel combination of a parametrically optimised UWB meshed circular disc monopole antenna with a polycrystalline silicon (poly-Si) solar cell is presented and discussed. The results indicate that the fabricated meshed solar monopole antenna operates across the frequency band 2.33–10.8 GHz with an average broadband gain of 4.1 dBi. It is demonstrated that by meshing the monopole pattern an adequate solar efficiency of 13.1% can be achieved.
