I have stuck at the programming part because i have no knowledge about PIC. And for the sensing part actually we are using 2 PV sensors inclined at 45 deg. and forming a triangle the output of these PV cells will be the input of PIC and then the PIC interfaced with wiper motor to rotate the solar tracker in cw,acw & no rotation.
And thank you for your supreme advice.

Yes. Use the CCS C, Hi-Tech C compiler, C18 or C30 compiler, depending on the microcontroller and your choice of compiler.

N what is the difference between embedded c and only c?

They're both C language, but with difference in application.

When talking about just C or only C as you mention, we refer to use for desktop computers, laptops, etc.
When talking about embedded C, we refer to use for more resource-constrained applications, such as microcontrollers. We talk about use for "embedded systems".

Hope this helps.

Now, you need to learn (if you don't know already) how to use the ADC module and the timers and how to drive motors. Which type of motor are you using? You need to learn how to drive that type of motor.
