For gridless power at home or office.

Solar installation at a ZED home

Just the 5 star geysers refrigerators and AC’s in India are saving about 9000 MW of power generation every day. India produces 220,000 MW. Government has cleared 80,000 more MW. And they want to raise this to 700,000 MW. Where’s the coal? India is creating 3 nuclear plants when Germany and Japan have closed all their N plants after 20 years. Coal mines destroy lives, livelihoods, forests and rivers.

Actual end-use power used is a mere 30,000 MW, if local power from solar and wind is not fed to grid but used directly by homes, offices, factories, hotels and hospitals.

The power industry lobby fears loss of the massive business if local power is promoted. Governments don’t want to lose the opportunity big spending offers of making speed money.

A solar station costs no more than 4-10 lakhs at about 2 lakhs to a KW of quality generation. It saves money on Gen-sets and UPS. Diesel power costs Rs. 20 a unit. UPS cost over 2 years with battery replacement Rs. 14 a unit. Solar costs Rs. 13 a unit, with the catch that you’ve to invest, not the government. Your BESCOM tariff is 7 to 14 a unit depending on user category.

portableHere’s something that can help you move away from inefficient water coolers, not just at your homes but everywhere you go. ZED –Portable AC systems are easy to carry and use as little power as any water cooler. Conventional water coolers use a 0.5 horse power or a 1 HP motor but these ACs work at 0.7 tons which is almost the same power rating to run as the water cooler. This ZED product comes from with an ionizer to keep the air in the room and requires no external split unit. Since it’s easy to move around, you can have just one unit and move it around reducing the hassles of fitting multiple AC units.

The icing on the cake is the built-in wide band heater, so the system can work as a heater and air-conditioner simultaneously in winter.
