SOLAR WATER HEATING SYSTEM
Solar water heating system is a device that helps in heating water by using the energy from the SUN. This energy is totally free. Solar energy (sun rays) is used for heating water. Water is easily heated to a temperature of 60-80o C. Solar water heater of Solar water heaters (SWHs) of 100-300 litres capacity are suited for domestic use. Larger systems can be used in restaurants, canteens, guest houses, hotels, hospitals etc. A 100 litres capacity SWH can replace an electric geyser for residential use and may save approximately 1500 units of electricity annually. The use of 1000 SWHs of 100 litres capacity each can contribute to a peak load saving of approximately 1 MW. A SWH of 100 litres capacity can prevent emission of 1.5 tonnes of carbondioxide per year.
WORKING OF A SOLAR WATER HEATER
The Sun’s rays fall on the collector panel (a component of solar water heating system). A black absorbing surface (absorber) inside the collectors absorbs solar radiation and transfers the heat energy to water flowing through it. Heated water is collected in a tank which is insulated to prevent heat loss. Circulation of water from the tank through the collectors and back to the tank continues automatically due to thermo siphon system.Based on the collector system, solar water heaters can be of two types: A solar water heater consists of a collector to collect solar energy and an insulated storage tank to store hot water. The stored hot water can be used later any time.
MAIN COMPONENTS OF SOLAR WATER HEATING SYSTEM
Main components of solar water heater system are
· Solar Collector( to collect solar energy)
· Insulated tank (to store hot water)
· Supporting stand
· Connecting pipes and instrumentation etc.
APPLICATIONS OF SOLAR WATER HEATER
Water heating is one of the most cost-effective uses of solar energy. Every year, several thousands of new solar water heaters are installed worldwide. Solar water heaters can be used for Homes, Community Centers, Hospitals, Nursing homes, Hotels, Restaurants, Dairy plants, Swimming Pools, Canteens, Ashrams, Hostels, Industry etc. Use of solar water heater can curtail electricity or fuel bills considerably.
Usage of solar water heater for any application where steam is produced using a boiler or steam generator can save 70-80% of electricity or fuel bills. A residence can save 70-80% on electricity or fuel bills by replacing its conventional water heater with a solar water heating system. Solar water heaters are known to have the fastest repayment of investment in 2 to 4 years depending upon use and fuel replaced.
TYPES OF SOLAR WATER HEATER
Basically two types of solar water heater are available in the market
FLAT PLATE COLLECTOR (FPC) SOLAR WATER HEATER
A black absorbing surface (absorber) inside the flat plate collectors absorbs solar radiation and transfers the energy to water flowing through it. Bureau of Indian Standards has standardized this type of solar collectors in IS 12933; 2003.
EVACUATED TUBE COLLECTOR (ETC) BASED SOLAR WATER HEATER
An ETC collector is made of double layer borosilicate glass tubes evacuated for providing insulation. The outer wall of the inner tube is coated with selective absorbing material. This helps absorption of solar radiation and transfers the heat to the water which flows through the inner tube. However, these types of collectors have not been standardized and are sourced from the suppliers who have been empanelled by the Ministry of New & Renewable Energy/Government of India on the basis of performance testing of sample system.
Approximate cost of the solar water heating systems is as under:-
(Cost includes Cold Water Tank, Hot Water Tank, support structures, heat exchanger, electrical backup and installation and commissioning at site. Additional piping will be charged as per actual. These are only indicative costs.)
Haryana Government Incentives to the users on use of Solar Water Heaters:-
(i) Rebate in electricity bills for domestic users – Rs.1200/- per year for 100 lpd system, Rs.2400/- for 200 lpd system & Rs.3600/- per year for 300 lpd system or more for three years.
(ii) Capital subsidy on domestic solar water heaters @ Rs.4000/- for 100 lpd & Rs.8000/- for 200 lpd & above incase of Flat Plate Collector Based Systems & @Rs.1500/- for 100 lpd & Rs.3000/- for 200 lpd & above incase of Evacuated Tube Collector Based Systems for all Haryana residents and Haryana Govt. employees living in Chandigarh. To ensure hassle free implementation of the scheme and hassle free disbursement of subsidy, the user has freedom to install solar water heating system from a supplier of his own choice provided it is BIS approved/MNRE empanelled. The subsidy is released by the District level office of HAREDA after verification of installation. After verification, the district office sends and advisory to the power utility for grant of rebate in the electricity bills.
(ii) 70% financial assistance provided on installation of solar water heating systems in social sector charitable institutions like Working Women Hostel, Destitute Childrens Home, Deaf & Dumb Rehabilitation Centres, Sports Hostels, Hostel for the SC students etc.
Ministry of New & Renewable Energy (MNRE), Government of India (GOI) Incentives to the users on use of Solar Water Heaters:-
i) Capital Subsidy @Rs.3300/- per sq.m. for Flat Plate Collector Based Systems and @Rs.3000/- per sq.m. in case of ETC based systems fro all categories. A 100 lpd Solar Water Heating Systems requires approximately 2 sq.m. of Flate Plate Collector area and 1.5 sq.m. of ETC Collector area.
ii) Soft Loan @5% per annum from Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency (IREDA), New Delhi and Nationalized Banks under interest subsidy scheme of the MNRE/GOI
