The word itself "Solar" describes that we are dealing with some renewable energy source for a hot water system. A Solar Hot Water System(SHWS) has been already designed, further implementation has been done by working on its insulation at variable time, temperature and solar radiation so that there is a minimum temperature drop over night decreases. A suitable material is found for insulation which is feasible, cost effective and available. For this project an instrument named "Pyranometer" has been used to measure solar radiation flux density (in watts per meter square) and the experimental data collected from pyranometer will be used to find the optimum position of SHWS.
