LNG

Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG). Natural gas is made up of just two elements - carbon and hydrogen. It is part of a family of chemicals known as hydrocarbons, which also includes oil and gasoline. As its name suggests, natural gas comes out of the ground as a gas; oil, gasoline and other hydrocarbons are recovered mixed together in a liquid called crude oil. Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) can play an important role in diversifying and expanding natural gas supplies and should be a part of a comprehensive, market-based energy policy that also encourages the development of domestic natural gas resources.

Heating Oil

Many households rely on heating oil to keep warm in winter. Late summer is a good time for consumers to further winterize their homes to help reduce fuel use (and save money) and to explore options for purchasing winter supplies, including seasonal contracts with heating oil companies that may offer price advantages.

Solar Energy

The use of Solar Energy to produce electricity is relatively expensive and has a high initial cost. In order to create a viable use of solar energy, we have developed SUN-UPS models which are very cost-effective and useful for multi-purpose and are easily upgradeable.

Basically Solar Modules are used in the daytime to produce electricity from the sun energy and stored in the battery for usage during the night. We have developed 8 different models as SUN - UPS for main usage in houses, flats, common area lighting, small shops, medical shops, restaurants and in offices to be used during power cut periods. The lights come on automatically when the normal power fails and switches off automatically when the normal power comes back. The system is designed in such a way that the total charging is done by solar power during summer, 50% solar and 50% EB power during winter and 100% EB power during rainy days, so as to maintain the charges in the battery all year round. The products are very simple to install and requires practically no maintenance.

The life of the solar module is about 20 years and the battery life is about 3 years and the bulb life is about 5 years. The investment by commercial establishments, are also eligible for 100% depreciation in the first year itself.
