On July 28th Aurore technicians Ramesh and Norbu went to Mamallapuram to install the first of our new pressurized Evacuated Tube Collector (ETC) solar water heaters at Hotel Radha, situated near the famous Pancha Rathas.
The new ETC system can handle mains pressures of up to 4 bar, as opposed to only 0.4 bar for the normal ETCs.
The 240 lpd (liters per day) system is on trail and if proven successful, Hotel Radha is going to install additional systems.
Since its inception in 1984, Aurore has installed standard as well as customized renewable energy systems all over India, often in remote locations. Below is an (incomplete) overview of our work so far.
