A 150L solar water heater is a small capacity water heater that works on solar power to heat water for domestic use. The 150 liter solar water heater can replace an electric geyser for residential use and save 1800 units of electricity annually. It is best for home with 4-5 members. A SWH of 150-Liter capacity can stop the emission of 2 tons of carbon dioxide per year while saving a great amount of non-renewable energy.

Solar water heater is a device that collects the sunlight and use it to heat the water. The heaters are equipped with solar collectors to catch and absorb the sunlight. By doing so, the collectors produce heat energy that is transferred to the running water. The water gets heated and transferred to the insulated tank to stay hot for an entire day.
