Bengaluru, May 3: Racold Thermo Private Limited, India’s largest manufacturer and provider of water heating solutions, launched a new range of solar water heaters ‘Alpha Pro’ at press conference held in Bengaluru today.
The Alpha Pro solar water heater comes with a unique ‘Smart-Float’ feature which is the first-of-its-kind in the world (patents are pending for this feature). This innovation in solar water heating ensures low maintenance costs, more safety & better aesthetics.
The most significant benefit of having an Alpha Pro is the energy saving that the consumer gets. A 200 litres per day Alpha Pro suitable for a family size of 6-8 members can save up to 3000 units of electricity in an year, not only does it offer huge monetary savings but it also helps in reducing the carbon footprint for a cleaner, greener India.
Speaking at the launch event, Mr. V Ramnath, Managing Director, Racold Thermo Private Ltd. said, “Bengaluru has favorable weather conditions and people have realized the importance of renewable energy. With this awareness, people are increasingly using solar water heaters and are reducing their dependence on electricity consumption. We, at Racold Thermo, have been setting the benchmark in the industry by introducing innovative, state-of-the-art technology and aesthetically designed products every year. The new technology bears testimony to our ability of constantly offering innovative and customized solutions for our customers.”
The Alpha Pro is a water heater that falls in the Evacuated Tube Collectors (ETC) category and is available in capacities ranging from 100 to 500 liters per day. It has highly efficient evacuated tubes. The water storage tank is made with food grade SS 304L (step type microstructure). High density Polyurethane Foam (PUF) ensures maximum heat retention. Zinc Alume outer body enhances durability of the product by protecting it against rusting and corrosion & thereby ensuring longer life of solar water heater.
Given the current scenario where electricity cost increases by 10% every year, Racold Thermo expects the payback period of the Alpha Pro to be approximately less than 2 years.
Alpha Pro solar water heater price starts from Rs.19,000/- across the country, available across residential as well as commercial usages like hospitality, healthcare and industrial applications.
