 hot water for  utensil cleaning . Solar water heating  gives these bakery an alternative source energy  
for heating water and  reducing cost of fuel .Temperature attained for such applications could be

the consumption .Many companies like Britannia has installed solar water heating  system  for its  hot
water requirement .The most popular supplier of such system is  Tata -BP  Solar India Ltd .
