Over 300 monks staying at the Paro Dratshang will now have access to hot water, thanks to the new solar water heating system installed by BES.

The 1000-liter water heating system was installed in February 2020 with technical assistance from JB Solar Solutions, and will supply hot water to the bathrooms as well as the dratshang kitchen.

Solar heating systems are an effective and efficient way to heat water while avoiding carbon and greenhouse gas emission.
