Proramme/Project Title: Installing of Solar Bottle
Income: In 100 Residence Family within our Barangay 50, 000 PESOS for general income.
Start off Date: Apr 3 to 18 (2 Weeks)
Background of the Project:
It is a straightforward bottle light bulb, usually a one liter soda bottle that is filled with a remedy of purified water and bleach. The bottle can be inserted halfway through a gap drilled inside the metal roof top and its factors are sealed. The whole deal looks like a bulb through a sunroof and supplies a good amount of mild by deflecting sunlight into gloomy decorations. The chlorine and whiten " poisons” the water to keep molds by developing and so the solution may last up to five years. The clear and purified water helps spread the light through refraction, and so the light can be not focused. It is only $2-3 to produce a solar bottle bulb that may be bringing light to dark homes.
Location/Target Population: Barangay, Tejeros Makati City
How you can Implement the Solar Bottle Bulb?
The idea is definitely actively being promoted simply by Barangay Tejeros Foundation Inc. in the Associated with Makati the " Isang Litrong Liwanag” Project which means ” A Liter of Light” and it was released in other barangays in Community Manila early on this year. Isang Litrong Liwanag is a Philippines-based business aiming to build indoor light in one million homes through the entire country by simply 2013. The Makati Town government shouldered the expenditures for making the bulbs while Barangay Tejeros Foundation educated residents approach make them.
Because a 1000s of poor homes in Manila have a problem, not uncommon for filled and tiny settlements. These types of houses are extremely close together, with metal roof covering that all the light is obstructed off without light actually reaches the homes even during daylight. This kind of project as well as its success is an excellent example of the ‘market-based' solutions that should be attacked for socio-economic problems around the world, strategies which have been smart, powerful & resourceful. Components of the Project:
The materials used for this type of continue to should have the next characteristics: * Materials should have a long existence under uncovered conditions or perhaps be economical enough to be replaced after degradation. * They should be strong enough to resist wind flow damage and slight globe movements. 5. They should be non-toxic and not emit vapors or perhaps instill an upsetting taste towards the water beneath elevated temperatures. * They must be able to avoid corrosion by saline normal water and distilled water. 5. They should be of any size and weight that may be conveniently grouped together, and taken by neighborhood transportation. * They should be easy to handle in the field.
Although regional materials ought to be used whenever feasible to lower first costs and also to facilitate any necessary fixes, keep in mind that sun stills created using cheap, unsturdy materials will not likely last as long as those built with more expensive, high-quality material. With this in mind, you have to decide whether you want to build an inexpensive and thus short-lived even now that needs to be substituted or repaired every number of years, or build something more durable and long lasting in the expect that the distilled water it produces will be cheaper over time. Of the low-cost stills that have been built all over the world, many have been completely abandoned. Building a more durable nonetheless that will last 20 years or more seems to be really worth the additional expense. Choosing elements for the constituents in contact with the water represents a significant problem. A large number of plastics can give off a substance which may be tasted or perhaps smelled inside the product drinking water, for periods of any where from hours to years. As being a general guidebook, if you are thinking of using virtually any material aside from glass or perhaps metal talking to water, you might perform a beneficial screening check by boiling a sample in the material in a cup of good water to get half an hour, then let the normal water cool, and smell and...
