            Project Outline
• Description: To determine options for hot
  water systems, and efficiency of various
  setups and technologies.
• Outcomes/Goals: To test the efficiency of
  renewable technologies and associated
  equipment for hot water (residential). Solar
  Water Heater vs. Heat Pump.
• Time frame: 18months
• Budget : AFD

                    Status
• Research is in progress to determine
  which equipment will be used to
  evaluate measurements for the
  comparison of results.
• Solar Flat plate, evacuated tube solar
  and heat pumps will be installed after
  the research is complete.
