Economic Evaluation of Passive Solar Distillation System: A Recent Study

An economic study of a passive solar distillation unit is presented in this chapter. The startup and ongoing costs, system life, and estimated costs per unit mass of distilled water were used to evaluate the net present worth (NPW), benefit-cost ratio, payback period (PP), and internal rate of return (IRR) of a solar distillation unit. One simple and affordable low-carbon method is solar distillation. According to calculations, the Net Present Value (NPW), Benefit-Cost Ratio (BCRR), Payback Period (PP), and Internal Rate of Return (IRR) are each Rs. 26945.72, 1.5632, 1.538 years, and 50%, respectively. This study demonstrated that one of the most alluring sources of energy for distilling water is solar energy.
