Government Policy

Motivation:


We are blessed with Solar Energy in abundance at no cost. The solar radiation incident on the surface of the earth can be conveniently utilized for the benefit of human society. One of the popular devices that harness the solar energy is solar hot water system (SHWS).

Fuel Savings:


A 100 liters capacity SWH can replace an electric geyser for residential use and saves 1500 units of electricity annually.

Avoided utility cost on generation


The use of 1000 SWHs of 100 liters capacity each can contribute to a peak load shaving of 1 MW.

Environmental benefits


A SWH of 100 litres capacity can prevent emission of 1.5 tonnes of carbon- dioxide per year.
Life : 15-20 years
