Increased uses of fossil fuels have also caused environmental problems both locally and globally. Against this background, the country urgently needs to develop a sustainable path of energy development. Therefore, this study concentrates on solar power as a renewable source of energy. It has many benefits compared to fossil fuels. It is clean and green, non-polluting and everlasting energy. For this reason it has attracted more attention than other alternative sources of energy in recent years. Hence primary data has been collected through interview and questionnaire methods. The result of the study shows benefits accrued from the 200 LPD solar water heaters definitely yields not only profit to the individual who owns the module but also to the society by way of pollution free environment.
