Solar Water Heating is the process of heating water through solar energy. In the process the solar heat is captured by using black painted absorber plates. Water used as heat exchanger extracts this heat from the collector and subsequently hot water is stored in an insulated tank for various domestic or institutional uses.
The Solar Water Heating System programme is sponsored by Central and State Govt. various financial incentives and technical help is extended to promotes of these prpgrammes. Subsidy for installation & technical know-how is provided. Publicity is undertaken through demonstration and exhibition.
Requires no conventional fuel or electricity for producing hot water
