Adding to the advancement in solar energy segment, Chennai-based solar technology solutions vendor Swelect Energy Systems partnered with US-based Zero Mass Water to produce, install and sell hydro panels.

Hydro panels are solar cells-fitted panels that use air and sunlight to produce water.

Commenting on the development, ZMW, Global Business, Executive Vice President, Robert Bartrop said, “One unit, which costs Rs 2 lakh (approx.), could produce up to five litre of water per day.”

“The company has global customers in 15 countries, including the US and Australia, and the panels will be made exclusively available in south India through Swelect. The company will make installations in north India as well,” he added.

On the other hand, Swelect, MD, R Chellapan said, “Solar is beyond photovoltaic and thermal, it has now forayed into water production. Swelect brings Sourcehydro panels – which is a renewable way of getting drinking water. Two panels can take care of the water needs of four people.”
