A 208 square metre solar thermal plant installed at a Bangalore hotel is part way towards paying for itself, and reducing the property’s carbon footprint, an energy news website has reported.

According to the sunwindenergy.com report, a 150kW solar thermal system installed by heating firm Bosch Thermotechnik at Novotel Bengaluru Techpark has been operating since December 2014, and is expected to have saved the hotel the cost of the system within a two-year period.

The system uses 100 collectors over a 208 square metre rooftop area and provides more than half of the property’s hot water. The rooftop solar thermal plant converts the sun’s energy to create solar heat that heats a 6,000 litre water tank for use in the 215 hotel rooms, laundry, kitchen and restaurant.
