In today’s world renewable energy is highly demanding because of increasing oil and fuel
prices, desire and necessity to avert irreversible climate damage and also the unreliability of the non -renewable
sources. In renewable energy, water is an important source. Previously water is used only for survival
of human being as much as food but no attentionhas been givenen to economical use and conservation of
resource for domestic power generation through roof top rain water harvesting. In the modern times, this
rain water serves for several purposes. Beside the production of hydel power, it is also used in crop cultivation,
fi shing and as well as for drinking purpose. Without doing this as a single work, we try to merge
several works done. In such a way, there will be a chance of increasing utilization of rain water harvesting.
