March 25, 2015 | A cool idea

Dear Avikal

I have gone through your communication with number of people having problem mainly the heat during summer, few are the residents at the top most floor of the multistory building.
I am also having a similar problem here at Pune.
I reside on 10th floor ( The top one ) and am experiencing inconvenience during current pre-summertime ( If I may say so )
I wanted to try out a relatively cheaper solution e.g.
Mix of Lime-Powder + Adhesive + white paint
This paste to be brushed on roof top may be more than one layer to help radiate the heat.

I would request you to kindly give a thought on it and revert back with your opinion.

Exactly Hassan! First take education to each households then go for legislation. Many instances reported in local media that in illegal mining areas like Udaipur, Rajsamand, Banswara, where mining mafia arranged said certificate and managed them to win keep them in their favour. Many tribal women couldn't contest. Meanwhile state government has decided to close down nearly 1500 schools came as another blow to them.

Excellent. Latin American Countries like Brazil.Chile,Argentina etc. can harness Renewables on a massive scale. In fact Argentina has one of the best wind regimes in the world(sites exceeding in annual wind speed of 10 m/s) with gross estimated potential of 500,000 MW !

Grow traditional crops those that withstand vagaries of weather as was the practice before the introduction of chemical input mono crop technology. We want adapt risky technology fr which government provides subsidies loans &loan weaver and yet farmers demand crop failure compensation. Is it the correct practice?? We must shift to traditional agriculture, farming system-animal husbandry based less risky system.

"Installing 5 KV Solar PV arrays to supply power to the irrigation pumps in farmer's fields making them self-sufficient in power and even supply excess power to the Grid".

I have some reservations on solar pumps:

An Interesting Story appeared in The Hindu on TIRUPATI, March 3, 2015(Tribal farmer plugs into the sun). These are more or less the claims of Solar Pump protagonists. Here are my reactions:
I read about the Solar Pump.
“The motor works for 300 sunny days a year, between 8.30 a.m. and 5.30 p.m., making use of the prevailing heat conditions in the State”. This is not true. The Maximum solar insolation occurs between 11 am to 3 pm when reasonable quantity of water can be pumped. 300 sunny days for the motor working is a tall claim. I have done extensive research on Solar Water Heaters, Solar Driers and Solar Disinfection and can authoritatively predict the optimum time a solar gadget works. The same applies to solar pump. Under Energy Park a Solar Pump was given free to an Engineering College. There the water depth is around 150 feet. As we could not find suitable farm,the solar pump is used to pump water from a sump(collected from bathrooms) to the nearby water tank.
“Staying grid-independent eliminates the scope for electrocution deaths in the fields, while the other major advantage of power supply during daytime (from sunshine) is the reduction of scope for snake bites and attack by wild animals in forest fringe villages.” This is amusing. There are 13 lakhs of Electric Pump sets in AP and in the country 2.6 crore. How many snake bites were reported?
“The government is actively promoting the scheme not just for the green component, but also to avoid the whopping Rs.30, 000 subsidy per 5HP agricultural motor per annum, which it incurs in supplying free power”.

There are about 13 Lakh Electric Pump sets in Andhra Pradesh(In India about 2.6 Crore). As stated above if the Government spends Rs 30,000 on each pump set by way of subsidy annually, to offset the losses I have a simple solution(with sheer commonsensense):

An Efficient Electric Motor costs around Rs 25,000. If we calculate the cost of the old motor and Rs 2,000 as Beneficiary’s contribution ,net cost will be Rs 20,000 per Motor. So the subsidy incurred for motor per year can be met to replace the old and inefficient electric motor. Assuming that the Electric Motor lasts for 15 years, enormous saving of power.
In our fields we replaced 6 Motors with efficient ones (Without anybody’s insistence) and now the water availability has increased substantially.

Instead of going in for new plants for power generation (especially coal based) which takes atleast 2 years to get numerous clearances, Energy saving and Energy Conservation yields quick results.

Energy Conservation

Today’s Wastage is Tomorrow’s Shortage

Each Kwh saved is each Kwh generated

Waste not and Want Not
