Uses Of Solar Energy By A Contentious Citizen

A  Contentious  Citizen  Using #Solar #Energy  And  Trying  To Popularise  Solar  Energy  Use..

Once again after a long gap I met Jagdish Sharma at his house in GK 2, Masjid Moth. His house never stops amazing me with the small solar panels in the balcony and numerous gadgets running on solar power. The solar mobile charger, the solar lantern, the solar inverter, the solar powered bulbs in his house, all continue to intrigue me. 

This time was a new addition, the solar cooker. With its improved design and with non-glass reflectors, the model was lighter than its predecessors. The cooker can be kept out on the terrace or balcony he says. The solar cooker is not meant to replace the gas stove as yet , but it can help to save 75% gas and will add organic value to the food cooked in it. The containers in which food is cooked are 4 steel containers which can be adjusted inside the cooker. These containers are coated with black paint to absorb more heat. He also wants to experiment with terracotta containers for a fully organic meal. The containers can be filled with food to be cooked and kept in the sun in the morning and one can get cooked food for lunch. 3-4 hours is the time required for the food to get cooked and this slow process of cooking enhances the taste of food too.

India has tremendous scope of generating solar energy. The geographical location of the country stands to its benefit for generating solar energy. The reason being India is a tropical country and it receives solar radiation almost throughout the year, which amounts to 3,000 hours of sunshine. This solar energy if used contentiously can help us to save tremendous amount of other energy forms. Although solar energy cannot totally eliminate usage of other forms of energy, the usage will help in curtailing and saving other energy forms. Also, Solar Energy is environment friendly. When in use, it does not release CO2 and other gases which pollute the air. Hence it is very suitable for India, India being one of the most polluted countries of the world. You don’t need a power or gas grid to get solar energy. A solar energy system can be installed anywhere. Solar panels can be easily placed in houses. Hence, it is quite inexpensive compared to other sources of energy. We hope that many citizens will start using solar energy for their everyday needs for energy and help the environment by doing so.
