A multipurpose hybrid solar water heater and room heater cum room lighting system have been designed and fabricated. The present system is not only provided the continuous hot water supply round the year but in winters it is feasible for space heating with good lighting around the place of installation (a room of 8 ×10 m 2 approximately). In the present article the methodology for the performance evaluation of hybrid solar water heater and room heater cum room lighting system has been discussed

Besides this, some additional benefits are presented over the designs of solar hybrid systems used for water and space heating.
