Survey of Renewable Energy systems along the Khumbu Trail en route from Lukla to Mount Everest PART 6

 PLEASE NOTE: THESE ARE UNFINISHED POSTS AS I ASSEMBLE MY NOTES AND COMPILE RELEVANT PHOTOGRAPHS FOR THE SURVEY.

#21 Amadablan Lodge. 4 Flat panels, separate tank (not visible). One panel is just filled with reflecting foil because the pipes broke.  Lak Pa, the owner says "I was happy for 2 years then I had frost breakage. Now in my third year I want a new system without these problems. I would prefer the vacuum tube system you are testing in Dingboche."  Lak Pa has installed his 500 liter water tank under the roof in the crawl space with two blue plastic barrell 200 liter cold water feed tanks. He keeps the area warm with a plastic corrugated skylight. Because of the slope of the roof and the placement of the tanks inside the solar still thermosiphons -- the panels are lower than the tank, which is on a stand at the apex of the roof.

LEDs are categorized in different types like miniature, mid range and high power according to their different sizes present in the market. These LEDs are considered to be the best source of light emission as these have a low wear and tear as compared to the other light emitting sources present in the market. LEDs when developed by Holonyak were developed to provide a simple and inexpensive way for computers to convey the information and then it was used in the portable calculators but now these LEDs are used from the coffee making machines to the 290 ft tall Reuters billboard in Times Square. Today these LEDs provide us an unmatched high quality and experience of TV watching by the LED televisions that are available in the market.
