Sometimes I think I am a ridiculous person. I dream of a perfect world. A dream of zero energy life style. I simply want to see everyone tap the energy “thereby” where and what required, I may not attain it sooner but I believe to reach the state of “tends to zero” soon.
- Invest on Solar Photovoltaic system for lighting and powering other electrical appliances. I have estimated a 1.5 KW system to power all my electrical need.
- Replacing use of LPG water heater with solar water heater which will abundantly supply hot water for bathing and other hot water utilities.
- Ambitiously, I am experimenting to power an Induction cooker with solar PV and eliminate LPG cook stove forever. For one reason, price of LPG has soared in Nepalese market and the other reason importantly cases of LPG fire accidents have rapidly occurred because of low quality cylinders and regulators in Nepalese market. For this I am investing for 200 Wp solar PV system initially. I will look over its performance and make changes as required to full fill my energy demand for cooking.
- Use of solar water pump for pumping water from ground tank to top tank will eliminate present ½ HP pump.
