Mr. CRK Hari has wanted to install solar panels at his home for more than 20 years. Like the engineers of the old times, he likes tinkering with things. Much of what the good engineers of the those days learnt was by practically doing things. He first implemented a solar water heating system at his place in Pitampura, Delhi and impressed by its performance, he was encouraged to look for solar electricity solutions for his home.
In most big cities, we notice individual houses are being broken down and high rises are constructed in their place. Given the tall buildings on both sides of his house, he knew the system performance would maybe be slightly lower but it was his wish to go solar regardless. Such was his commitment to renewable energy.
His wife, a doctor, finds that the bills have come down significantly and they are both enjoying the economic benefits of solar power. Mr. Hari has been a clean energy advocate for years. He enjoys long drives and has driven extensively across this beautiful country and appreciated nature by being amidst it. In this day and age, it is becoming increasingly difficult to find people who want to give back to nature what they have taken from her.
We have noticed that after installing solar, consumers are a lot more aware of their power consumption. Every unit of energy saved at your home can be used to power someone who does not have access to electricity. This sense of conscientiousness is important if we want to leave a better planet for our future generations. Every evening, Mr. Hari parks his car and checks how many units the solar system produced. On cloudy, foggy days, there is a sense of unhappiness while on a sunny day, there is great joy … Look how technology is connecting us back to the nature in many ways and making us appreciate the simple things, like the sunlight, that we take for granted.
As India turns 70, we hope the coming year is one in which more Indians adopt clean energy solutions. As Mr. Hari says, solar is also a social cause, something small but meaningful we can do for our country.
