India: Goa Hotel Sector Discovers Solar Thermal

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on February 8, 2013

When you hear about Goa, the conversation has probably something to do with holidays in India. The small state at the west coast is quite popular with tourists from around the globe. Goa is said to have attracted more than two million visitors in 2012. About 1.2 million of the guests were from abroad, which is almost 13% of the total number of foreign tourists who visit India every year. This is why it should come as no surprise that tourism represents the main source of income for both the state’s government and its residents. On the other hand, the state relies 100% on other Indian states for its supply of energy, as Goa has no electricity generation of its own. With electricity remaining an issue on the government’s agenda, substituting outside electricity with local solar water heater systems may contribute to save energy in the state. The photo shows the solar thermal system installed at Goa’s Joecons Beach Resort.
