Abstract: As the human population, industrialization and modernization increases day by day. The condition of consumable water becomes miserable. So it becomes our primary objective to get consumable drinking water, with the lowest possible cost, without suffocating the conventional source of energy (like- coal, electricity). In this way solar distillation system (solar still) seems a very promising method to get consumable drinking water with lowest possible cost and without polluting environment. Although the concept of solar distillation is not new, again lot of research has been performed to get the highest possible distilled water from the solar distillation system. To increase the production rate of solar distillation system, an experiment has been performed regarding this; we use already heated water from evacuated tube solar water heating system to the solar distillation system incorporated with the fan powered by solar panel
