Rooftop water tanks and solar panels

Rooftop water tanks and solar panels

There are currently are 11 adults in Lok’s house (including 4 family members) and we use about 1000 litres of water every 10 days.  Lok gets the water replenished once 1000 litres of water is used at a cost of 2,500 Rs per delivery.  There are 1000 litres tanks x 2 (black plastic tanks) on the roof and water drains from one of the tanks into the hot water tank (stainless steel tank).  If there is sun (!) the solar panels warm up the water for hot showers.

About Kate Coffey

After 25+ years in the investment management industry, I packed in my job and spent 2014 living and working in Nepal and Bangladesh, and visited some other places in between. It took me on a journey I did not expect, had me fall in love with Nepal and it's people, and become inspired at the work of Spinal Injury Rehabilitation Centre (SIRC) located 2 hours east of Kathmandu in the Sanga foothills. Since 2014, I have continued my warm relationship with SIRC and worked closely with my friends there in the aftermath of the 2015 earthquakes to date. This blog initially started out as a travelogue of sorts to keep friends and family worldwide updated while I was off on my travels in 2014. Since then it has morphed into a life story of the many places I have lived and worked and of the wonderful people I have met along the way. I hope you enjoy.
