Installing Solar Water Heater for Home – Information and Costing

Solar Water Heater

Recently we installed 150 Litre Solar Water Heaters at our terrace. Below are the Information, photos and costing for Installation of Solar Water Heater.

When you decides to install solar water heater, you need to consider following factors,

  • How many people are there in your home who will be using hot water ?
    • Based on this the number of Liter water required needs to be finalized. Lets say, you have 3 people at your home and each one will use average 50 Ltr of hot water each day, then you will need to purchase 50*3 = 150 Ltr solar water heater.
  • What is your budget for purchasing new solar water heater ?
    • As you might already be aware, solar products needs somewhat more initial investment, so you needs to enquire different brands available in market and compare their pricing and features for same model of solar water heater.
  • What is the warranty of the solar water heater and how you will contact them in future for servicing ?
    • Most of the solar water heaters are long durable, and comes warranty of 5-7 years. So you needs to get proper warranty information and how they will provide the service for future in case some issues. Once installed, the most common issue you might face is due to hardened water. But if you are ready to get solar water heater serviced once in one / two year then no issues.

The common pricing for installing solar water heater will include following things,

  • Solar Water Heater Price + Tax
  • Transportation Cost
    • If you have agreed to pay for transportation cost of solar water heater ( tank + pipe etc ) from company to your home, then we need to account this cost.
  • Plumbing Material and Service cost
    • This will be an additional cost which includes purchasing all the pipes ( hot water pipe, cold water pipe ), valves etc and payment of plumber services. If your current cold water tank is at same surface level where are going to install water heater, then there will be additional cost to increase height of cold water tank, so that daily transmission of cold water to solar water heater and hot water from water heater to your bathroom tap can be automated without daily efforts required to fill solar water heater tank.

What is Minimum Support Price ( MSP ) & related all information


What is Minimum Support Price ( MSP ) ?

The Minimum Support Price (MSP) Scheme is a scheme of the Government of India (GOI) to safeguard the interests of the farmers. Under this Scheme the GOI declares the minimum support Prices of various agricultural produces and assures the farmers that their agricultural produce (of FAQ) will be purchased at the MSP, thereby preventing its distress sale.

The government uses the MSP as a market intervention tool to incentivise production of a specific food crop which is in short supply. It also protects farmers from any sharp fall in the market price of a commodity. MSPs are usually announced at the beginning of the sowing season and this helps farmers make informed decisions on the crops they must plant.

Who and how MSP is decided ?

MSP is computed on the basis of the recommendations made by the Commission for Agricultural Costs and Prices (CACP). CACP submits its recommendations to the government in the form of Price Policy Reports every year, separately for five groups of commodities namely Kharif crops, Rabi crops, Sugarcane, Raw Jute and Copra. The government, in turn, circulates the CACP reports to state governments and concerned central Ministries for their comments. After receiving the feed-back from them, the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) of the Union government takes a final decision on the level of MSPs and other recommendations made by CACP. Once this decision is taken, CACP puts all its reports on the web site for various stakeholders to see the rationale behind CACP’s price and non-price recommendations.

How does CACP recommends the MSP ? 

While recommending price policy of various commodities under its mandate, the CACP keeps in mind the various Terms of Reference (ToR) given to CACP in 2009. Accordingly, it analyses

1) demand and supply;
2) cost of production;
3) price trends in the market, both domestic and international;
4) inter-crop price parity;
5) terms of trade between agriculture and non-agriculture; and
6) likely implications of MSP on consumers of that product.

It may be noted that cost of production is an important factor that goes as an input in determination of MSP, but it is certainly not the only factor that determines MSP.

Who Manages the Procurement of Grains ?

The Food Corporation of India (FCI) acts as the Nodal Agency of the GOI for procurement, along with State agencies who establishes purchase centres for procuring food grain under the price support scheme.

Where Can I find current information about MSP ?

पशुसल्ला – गाय, म्हैस व कोंबड्यांसाठी लसीकरण वेळापञक – डॉ. लिना धोटे

कोणताही रोग झाल्यावर लागणाऱ्या खर्चाच्या पटीत लसीकरणाचा खर्च नगण्यच आहे. लसीकरणासाठी लागणारा वेळ आणि पैसा खूप कमी असल्याने त्यापासून होणारा फायदा लक्षात घेता जनावरांना होणाऱ्या रोगांची लस त्या-त्या ऋतूच्या आधी करून घेणे फायदेशीरच आहे .

लसीकरण केल्यामुळे फक्त लसीकरण केलेल्या जनावरालाच नाही तर त्या जनावरांपासून मानवाला होणाऱ्या रोगासही प्रतिबंध होण्यास मदत होते. उदा. रेबीज, ब्रुसेल्ला, लेप्टोस्पायरा, रिफ्ट व्हॅली फिवर, इन्फ्लुएंझा इत्यादी.

  • लसीकरणामुळे जनावरात आढळणाऱ्या रोगांची साखळी तोडली जाऊन त्याचा प्रसार थांबवण्यास मदत होते. संबंधित रोगांपासून होणारी आर्थिक हानी तसेच कष्ट वाचतात.
  • रोगांपासून जनावरे पूर्णपणे बरी होऊनसुद्धा वर्षानुवर्षे अनेक दुष्परिणामांचा सामना करावा लागतो. उदा. लाळ्या-खुरकूत त्यामुळे अशा सगळ्या रोगांना प्रतिबंध हाच एकमेव चांगला उपाय ठरतो. योग्य प्रतिबंधासाठी लसीकरण महत्त्वाचे आहे.
  • प्रतिजैविकांच्या झालेल्या अतिरेकी गैरवापरामुळे प्रतिजैविकरोधी (रेसिसटंट) झालेल्या किंवा कोणतेही प्रतिजैविक वापरून नष्ट न होणारे किंवा त्यांना दाद न देणारे जिवाणू, विषाणू आज वातावरणात पसरले असताना त्यांचा नाश करणे अवघड झाले आहे.
  • बऱ्याच आजारांसाठी लागणाऱ्या लसी जवळील पशुधन विकास अधिकाऱ्यांकडून सवलतीच्या दरात मिळू शकतात; अन्यथा मोठ्या प्रमाणात लसीची आवश्यकता भासल्यास ती लस संबंधिता मार्फत किंवा स्वत: विकत आणू शकतो.

हिवाळ्यात कोंबड्यांची काळजी कशी घ्यावी – डॉ. लिना धोटे , डॉ. निलेश पानसरे


बदलत्या वातावरणामुळे जनावरांवर त्याचा काही प्रमाणात चांगला व वाईट परिणाम होतो. थंडी चा काळ हा जनावरांसाठी अतीशय महत्वाचा आहे, त्यात कोंबड्याची  काळजी घेणे अतिशय महत्त्वाची बाब आहे, कारण त्यांच्या शरीराचे तापमान बाकीच्या जनावरांच्या तुलनेत थोडे जास्त असते त्यामुळे थंडी च्या काळात त्यांची विशेष काळजी घ्यावी लागते. या काळात कोंबड्याच्या शरीराचे तापमान टिकवून ठेवण्यासाठी त्यांना जास्तीत जास्त उर्जायुक्त खाद्य पुरवावे.या काळात काळजी न घेतल्यामुळे त्यांची प्रजनन क्षमता,अंडी उबवणी क्षमता,अंडी उत्पादन,पाणी पिण्याची क्षमता अश्या अनेक प्रकारच्या समस्या निर्माण होतात. त्यामुळे कमी तापमानाच्या काळात त्यांच्या आहाराकडे आणि शेडमधील व्यवस्थापणाकडे लक्ष देणे खूप गरजेचे आहे.

आहार व्यवस्थापन

१. कोंबड्यांना संतुलित आहार पुरवावे जेणेकरून त्यांची रोगप्रतिकार क्षमता उत्तम राहील.
२. शेडमध्ये फीडर्स संख्या वाढवावी.दिवसभर त्यांना मुबलक खाद्य मिळेल याची नोंद घ्यावी.
३. शरीराचे तापमान टिकवून ठेवण्यासाठी कोंबड्याना उत्तम दर्जाचे खाद्य देने आवश्यक आहे.
४. कमी तापमानाच्या काळात कोंबड्यानं जास्त प्रमाणात खाद्य द्यावे आणि यावेळी त्यांना ऑक्सिजनची मागणीदेखील जास्त असते.
५. खाद्य बनवताना ऊर्जा असणाऱ्या स्रोतांचा प्रामुख्याने स्निग्ध पदार्थांचा वापर करावा.
६. हिवाळ्यामध्ये कोंबड्या खुप कमी पाणी पितात.कोंबड्याना ताज्या व स्वच्छ पाण्याचा पुरवठा करावा.
७. पाणी खुप थंड असेल तर गरम पाणी मिसळून घ्यावे.त्यामुळे त्यांची पाणी पिण्याची क्षमता वाढेल.
८.एकूण वाटरर्स पैकी काही वाटरर्स मध्ये चव येण्याकरिता ग्लुकोज,साखर, टरबुज- खरबूज च पाणी टाकावे जेणेकरून कोंबड्या पाणी पिणार आणि त्यांची पचनक्रिया अगदी सुरळीत राहील.

शेडचे व्यवस्थापन

१. व्यवस्थापन मध्ये अचानक कुठलंही बदल करू नये.
२. शेडची दिशा पूर्व-पश्चिम असावी त्यामुळे जास्तीत जास्त सूर्यप्रकाश शेडमध्ये येण्यास मदत होते.
३. हिवाळ्यात रात्रीच्या वेळेस तापमान खुप कमी होते,त्यामुळे शेडच्या ज्या भागातून थंड हवा येते अश्या ठिकाणची पूर्ण जागा पडद्यानि बंद करून घ्यावेत आणि परत दुसऱ्या दिवशी सकाळी उघडून घ्यावेत जेनेकरून  सकाळी सुर्यप्रकशाची किरण शेडमध्ये येतील नि कोंबड्याना उब मिळेल.
४. शेडमध्ये चांगल्याप्रकारचे लिटर वापरावे ते नेहमी स्वच्छ व कोरडे असावे लिटर मटेरियल पासून सुद्या कोंबड्याना उब मिळते.
५. शेडमधील हवा खेळती राहण्यासाठी भिंती कमी उंचीच्या व वर जाळी बसवलेली असावी. 
६. प्रदूषित हवा बाहेर फेकण्यासाठी एक्झॅस्ट फॅनची व्यवस्था करावी.
७. शेडभोवतालचा परिसर स्वच्छ ठेवावा. बदलत्या हवामानानुसार व्यवस्थापनामध्ये योग्य ते बदल करण्यासाठी योग्य त्या उपाययोजना कराव्यात.
८. शेडमधील हवा खेळती नसेल तर कोंबड्यांचा विष्टेतुन तयार होणाऱ्या अमोनिया वायूमुळे श्वसन विषयी समस्या तयार होतात.त्यामुळे कोंबड्याना ताप येणे,खोकलने,छातीत दुखणे,श्वसनास त्रास होणे,तोंड पसरून श्वास घेणे,भूक मंदावणे,घरघर असा आवाज येणे अश्या बऱ्याच समस्या उद्भवतात.
