ABSTRACT
The solar energy is one of the potential sources of energy which is clean, non-pollutant, inexhaustible and replenishable. At present, the conventional methods of illumination use electricity as a basic source. This paper discusses the new design of an efficient solar illumination system and solar based home appliances. This illumination system can be successfully used for illumination of single room as well as whole house/offices in a day time. At the same time solar based home appliances can be operated with the help of solar energy. It has been observed that new design of house is advantageous in following manner. (1) To take maximum advantages of solar energy, the concept of solar energy can be combined with civil engineering. (2) The home appliances and similar facilities can be designed and arranged in the building in a scientific manner. (3) The use of optical fibers, optical lenses, solar cells, solar energy storage devices, solar operated equipments etc. would be effective for the building design. (4) It is very economical against the conventional system which requires large amount of electricity. The estimation of total power required to run the electrical instruments was carried out very precisely. To fulfill the power requirement of the house an effort has been made by keeping in view the most favorable situation, arrangement and location of various solar driven home appliances.
