Solar Comet: The house on wheels

Jun 07, 2017

Girish Sethi, Senior Director of Energy Programme at The Energy and Resources Institute (India) flagged off a bus with solar roof tiles called Solar Comet. As part of the project, it is a small house on wheels and has appliances commonly used in a household. The house has LED bulbs along with other major energy consuming appliances like a washing machine, air conditioner and refrigerator. There are 2kilowatt solar panels on the roof that display the capacity of solar energy utilisation. The house also aims to debunk myths like costs, application and usage.
