  16. 17. Gutter Without Guard Open Gutter- Source of all Problems When the gutter was without protection, people were dumping garbage & debris into it. As a result , there was stagnation & overflow of sewage & breeding of mosquitoes
  17. 18. Gutter With Guard The garden can be over the street open gutters Gutter with a Guard. An elevated platform in the form of a lengthy pot-holder is constructed over the gutter / open sewage in front of the house . The sewage runs below & the garden grows above. No more the problem of garbage & debris falling into it. Home Front Gutter Guard Garden

  78. 87. The uses of Jatropha <ul><li>Hedges of Jatropha are planted to prevent soil erosion and shifting sand dunes and to secure small dams. </li></ul><ul><li>Jatropha oil is used for hair care and making soaps </li></ul><ul><li>The oil has tremendous medicinal value and is used to treat skin ailments such as eczemas, acne, rashes, psoriasis and fungus. </li></ul><ul><li>The leaf juice and the bark are use to make a dye </li></ul><ul><li>The leaves are used in remedies for treating malaria </li></ul><ul><li>Latex from the stem and leaf when taken orally along with ripe banana once or twice a day helps to check dysentery in adults ( Jatropha Curcas L). </li></ul><ul><li>The latex also serves as a disinfectant for mouth infections in small children. It helps to stop bleeding as well (haemostatic property). </li></ul><ul><li>The roots are used as an antidote for snake poison </li></ul><ul><li>The twigs can be used for cleaning teeth. </li></ul><ul><li>Last but not the least it is a source of bio-diesel that can be tapped for providing a path to sustainable transportation. </li></ul>
  79. 88. <ul><li>Tree felling is at jet speed whereas tree planting is at snail’s pace. The outcome is anybody’s guess. Start planting trees on birthdays, wedding anniversaries and all other functions. Any meeting start with tree planting like singing a prayer. </li></ul>P. Tree Planting
  80. 89. Trees are must in any street. Have a close look at the word street You didn’t get it still? Remove the first & the last letter from the word STREET HA……………………! HA………………….!! It is Tree! The word street itself has tree! Then what about the street where you live? sTREEt

  108. 145. <ul><li>1. Efficient Lighting: </li></ul><ul><li>Use lights where required </li></ul><ul><li>Avoid incandescent light bulbs (GLS bulbs). The best is LED and next is CFLs </li></ul><ul><li>Nations world over have started banning incandescent light bulbs in favour of more energy efficient light sources, like CFLS & LED bulbs and the ban would cut the world’s greenhouse gas emissions by 4% to 9% </li></ul><ul><li>Experts say unchecked greenhouse gas emissions could see temperatures rising between 1.8 and 4.0 degrees Celsius (3.2 and 7.8 Fahrenheit) in the 21st century. </li></ul><ul><li>The Indian subcontinent is expected to be one of the most seriously affected regions in the world by global warming, which will mean more frequent and more severe natural disasters such as floods and droughts, more disease and more hunger. </li></ul><ul><li>CFLs -- although eight times more expensive than the yellow incandescent bulbs that have been in use virtually unchanged for 125 years -- use 80 percent less energy and you would save households and industries a substantial amount of money. We have been using incandescent light bulbs for 125 years and up to 90 per cent of the energy each light bulb uses is wasted, mainly as heat. </li></ul><ul><li>However, there are concerns about the mercury content in CFLs from environmentalists, who say disposing of them could present serious health risks due to the toxicity of the heavy metal. </li></ul><ul><li>Alternatives like CFL or LED means more cost effective, longer life, more eco friendly. But care needs to be taken while disposing CFL as harmful mercury could pose an environment threat. Most parts used in LED can be recycled. </li></ul><ul><li>A comparison of the average life of the three types: </li></ul><ul><li>Incandescence - 1000hours; CFL – 10,000 hours ; LED – 100,000 hours </li></ul>
  109. 146. Filament bulb is considered anti environment. It is less efficient and to make it burn more coal has to be burnt resulting in release of more green house gases. The Filament Bulb
  110. 147. <ul><li>Light efficiency around 12 – 15 lumens per Watt </li></ul><ul><li>Works on the principle of heating the tungsten filament </li></ul><ul><li>Lower voltage reduces the light by fourth power ( 5% voltage reduction, >20% reduced light) </li></ul><ul><li>Higher voltage reduces life </li></ul><ul><li>Since temperature can be as high as 80 deg C - hence reduces comfort during warm weather </li></ul><ul><li>low life – average expected life is 1000 hours, at normal voltage </li></ul>The Filament Bulb
  111. 148. The CFL Compact Fluorescent Lamp It is good in view of its efficiency and long life. The only problem is its disposal as mercury is used in it.
  112. 149. <ul><li>“ T-5” or slim tubes with special phosphor can produce 90-120 lumens per watt </li></ul><ul><li>Normal tube lights produce 50 – 110 lumens per watt, depending on the manufacturer. - thus 4 – 8 times more efficient than incandescent lights. </li></ul><ul><li>Compact fluorescent lamps are tube lights, folded for smaller wattage. </li></ul><ul><li>CFL is not more efficient than normal tube lights. </li></ul><ul><li>Works on the principle of gas discharge, which releases light from fluorescent material. </li></ul><ul><li>Mercury is used as the main vapour, which produces ultraviolet rays. </li></ul><ul><li>With deterioration of coating, light reduces and ultra violet increases. </li></ul><ul><li>Requires a current limiting device, which is called choke. </li></ul><ul><li>Choke (non electronic or wire wound) consumes about 15 to 20 watts (for a 40 W tube) </li></ul><ul><li>Electronic choke would produce harmonics, interfering with other electronic devices, and reducing efficiency of some of the other devices. </li></ul><ul><li>Has low power factor which needs to be compensated, to help power producers. </li></ul><ul><li>Longer life compared to Incandescent – 6000 to 10000 hours depending on the brand. </li></ul><ul><li>On disposal, causes mercury contamination in the area </li></ul>The CFL
  113. 150. It is the BEST The LED It is energy effiicient , has long life and pleasant to eyes
  114. 151. <ul><li>Has present efficiency of 25 to 40 lumens per watt </li></ul><ul><li>For a 40 degree light, produces more than 16.7 times lux than a 360 degree lamp. Thus, a 2 watt LED with 25 lumens per watt, would give 1.74 times more lux. </li></ul><ul><li>Due to low wattage, it can be brought closer – a light source at 1 meter requires only 10% of power, compared to a source at 3 meters. </li></ul><ul><li>LED light of 1 watt, placed all around the room (4m x 5 m , at 2 m height, spaced 1.5 m approx.) will require 20 lamps, and would give more uniform light than 2 x 40 W lights, placed in 2 ends – thus saving more than 75% </li></ul><ul><li>Properly designed LED lights have a life of 100,000 hours – at 12 hours per day, it is close to 23 years. </li></ul><ul><li>Major content of the LED is epoxy/poly-corbonate – can be recycled, like plastic when collected </li></ul>The LED

  117. 154. <ul><li>Tips for proper lighting-Recommendations : </li></ul><ul><li>Have multiple levels of lighting, to cater to different needs in the same room </li></ul><ul><li>While watching TV in the living room, very low lighting level is sufficient. </li></ul><ul><li>A meeting with guests would require high lighting, and a party could do with medium lighting. </li></ul><ul><li>Distribute the lights and locate the lights as low as feasible </li></ul><ul><li>Try to use more down lighting than up lighting (reflected light from ceiling could be as low as 50%) </li></ul><ul><li>Choose chandeliers with more efficient bulbs </li></ul><ul><li>Know the temperature of your bulbs. Heat generated by them could causes discomfort, apart from draining energy. </li></ul><ul><li>Brighter sources can also affect visual ability especially when there are reflective materials nearby. </li></ul><ul><li>Have light only where required (roof, walls etc need to be lighted, only if there is something to display) </li></ul><ul><li>Use only required levels of brightness in lighting your home (getting used to too bright a light, reduces the eye capability to adjust to dim lights) </li></ul><ul><li>Have the light source behind you (when used in front use shades/ directional light such as LED) </li></ul><ul><li>Know the colour rendering index, of your light source </li></ul>
  118. 155. <ul><li>Comparison of alternate lighting systems to incandescent bulb </li></ul><ul><li>General facts: </li></ul><ul><li>Light units are measured in terms of Lumen. </li></ul><ul><li>The actual requirement for any task is described by light intensity, LUX (a unit of illumination equal to one lumen per Sq. m) </li></ul><ul><li>For white light (as spectrum), the maximum light which can be theoretically produced would be around 400 Lumens per Watt </li></ul><ul><li>Presently achieved lumens per watt ranges from about 5 with diffused incandescent, to about 120 in high pressure sodium vapour lamp. </li></ul><ul><li>The present efficacy of light is measured in terms of “total diffused light”, i.e. the total light produced in 360 degree direction by any lamp. </li></ul><ul><li>Since we require light only for specific purposes, using light without reflectors would cause dissipation of light. </li></ul><ul><li>The reflectibility of various surfaces is as given in the table below. </li></ul><ul><li>50% of human comfort is from radiating to cooler surfaces – any object higher than 32-33 degree C (which is just less than skin temperature) causes discomfort </li></ul><ul><li>Glare </li></ul><ul><li>Glare, caused by an excessively bright source of light in our field of view, interferes with our visual perception. In most situations, glare is something we would like to eliminate for better visual acuity. Direct Glare is caused by the bright source shining directly into the eyes. Indirect Glare or Reflected Glare is due to light sources reflected from tasks or other surfaces into the eyes. By having an uncontrolled direction of light, the possibility of glare becomes higher </li></ul>
