Benefits:

  • Saves money every month
  • Increases independence
  • Performs well even during the rainy season
  • Appropriate technology for Cambodia
  • Field tested, proven equipment
  • High efficiency

Applications:

ideal for households, health centers, hotels, guesthouses, and restaurants


For households, small guesthouses and restaurants, Khmer Solar offers solar hot water units that incorporate hot water collector pipes and a storage tank into a single self-contained module. These units come in a variety of sizes, and can be duplicated to obtain the desired capacity level. Storage tanks hold hot water until it is used, even in the middle of the night. Systems should be sized based on how the water is used. If most of the hot water is used during the day, then smaller storage tanks and collectors are needed.
