Solar water-heating system
Betty Academy Mbeere, 27th. February 2014, Open Day.
The solar-water heating system was finally installed and operational. Pupils delighted in demonstrating the various parts of the solar project to their parents.
There was great interest in the 200 liter flat-panel hot water system. It was intentionally installed in the school quadrangle so that children and visitors could touch and feel it and get a practical experience of the sun’s energy.
The hot water is highly valued and is used daily for washing, saving the school a great deal of firewood.
