Muni Seva Ashram uses solar energy for heating water, cooking meals, lighting, and ventilation demands on-campus.
Everyday, 31,000 liters of water is heated and used, through solar flat plate collectors, at the Ashram’s kitchens, guest houses and hospitals. We also have two Scheffler Dishes (10m2 each) at the Sharda Mandir school, used to cook meals for 200 students. The Green Campus at Vankuva, home to our Eklavya and Vivekanand Schools, lunch and dinner for 400 students is cooked using 10 Scheffler dishes (10m2 each) and thermic oil as a heat carrier. Box solar cookers and SK10/14 parabolic solar cookers are also used for domestic cooking and demonstrations.
Since grid power was not available when Green Campus was being built, a 13KW solar power plant was installed to meet the lighting and ventilation demands of the schools and hostels. Most of the street lights at the Ashram are automatic, self-contained solar photovoltaic systems (with panels mounted on the light poles)
