By absorbing and treating water vapor from the air itself, each of the Source Solar Panel in an average can produce 5 liters of water a day with the ability to store up to 30-32 liters of emergency water. With an estimation of about 663 million people are away from access to safe drinking water, the source technology can go a long way to improving lives around the world.
Essential Benefits of Installing Solar Panels on the Rooftop
A solar panel placed on your rooftop could capture drinkable water faster from your faucet than you can actually think of. The source, solar panel system that is developed by the zero mass water, is a start-up with a mission to make drinking water accessible to all, turns water vapor that is present in the atmosphere into the clean and drinkable water.
The panel that gathers water is made of a material that is created by Zero Mass Water that inactively absorbs moisture in the air. The technology is compared to the rice grains placed inside the salt shakers. The water binds with the rice grains more strongly and effectively than the salt. It also prevents the salt from getting damp.
The material used in the Source technology absorbs water, in the same way, the solar panels harvest the energy needed to evaporate water to purify it. The water then runs through a mineral block that significantly improves the taste of water and its nutritional value. On an average, one device of Source system produces 5 liters of water per day that can be stored in the metal storage compartment and can hold up to 30 liters of water.
Today, a family of four would be falling short of about 3 liters of drinking water if everyone follows the rule of 8 glasses per day, but the Source system could fill the needs for drinking clean water in rescue camps and in the tribal communities. People can drink the water directly or can store it for future use. It can be fed to animals and can be used in the hot and humid areas where there is a scarcity of drinking water for the people and for the wild.
Everyone Has the Right to Potable Water
According to the world health organization, around 10% of the world’s population, roughly around 663 million people are still lacking the access to safe drinking water. It is a dramatic socio-political challenge that has been brought on by the poor infrastructure and people who are in the low living standards.
The source system could address these water issues by being much more flexible than city-regulated piping. According to the Zero Mass Water reports, their technology doesn’t need to be hooked up to a home’s electrical system or to a power grid and is completely renewable. The installation of the panel takes only about 20 minutes and these devices have already been installed in areas of Ecuador, Jordan, Mexico, and the U.S.
The world health organization also says that the clean water not only prevents diseases but it can also improve the economy of a country and help reduce poverty. The source system is helping people with bringing safe and hygienic water to everyone in the world. The technology is trending so rapidly across the globe that perhaps one day it reaches all the corners of the world and when you open the tap to get a glass of drinking water, your water will be flowing straight from the panels installed on the roof instead of the pipes in the ground.
