100% cop­per ad­van­tage ACs a win-win sit­u­a­tion for OEMs and con­sumers

Power Watch India - - DESPATCHES NATIONAL -

In­ter­na­tional Cop­per As­so­ci­a­tion In­dia (ICA In­dia) re­cently or­gan­ised an ex­ten­sive con­sumer aware­ness cam­paign on room ACs in Mum­bai and Delhi to help con­sumers make in­formed de­ci­sion while the cam­paign ed­u­cated over 25 lakh con­sumers on the ad­van­tages of hav­ing 100% cop­per tubes in in­door, out­door units and con­nect­ing tube of air con­di­tion­ers. Most ar­eas in In­dia have am­bi­ent con­di­tions which are dusty, prone to pol­lu­tion, fumes from sew­er­ages and salty sea-breeze. In such ar­eas, the con­denser gets clogged lead­ing to gas leak­ages, in­door unit fil­ter chok­ing, cor­ro­sion and drop in energy ef­fi­ciency. Con­densers of cop­per tube can be easily and ef­fec­tively cleaned when ex­posed to such harsh con­di­tions, low­er­ing the risk of gas leak­ages, cor­ro­sion and drop in energy ef­fi­ciency. Cop­per tube con­densers are more ef­fi­cient at trans­fer­ring heat, low on main­te­nance and highly re­li­able and durable. Kar­nataka is em­bark­ing on set­ting up a mega so­lar power park, said to be the world’s big­gest. The park, with a ca­pac­ity of 2,000 MW, will come up on 10,000 acres of land in the Pav­a­gada taluk of Tu­makuru dis­trict. In ad­di­tion to the park, Kar­nataka has big­ger plans for the re­new­able energy sec­tor as the State com­mit­ted it­self to set­ting up projects to tap green energy to the tune of 16,000 MW in the next five to seven years. To fa­cil­i­tate evac­u­a­tion of such a mas­sive quan­tum of re­new­able energy from the gen­er­a­tion sites, the Cen­tre has also de­cided to set up an ex­clu­sive pan-In­dia green cor­ri­dor at a cost of Rs. 36,000 crore.
