TP Renewable Microgrid (TPRMG), a wholly owned subsidiary of Tata Power, inaugurated its first 5KW Bio-gas generating plant at Kamalpura (Basaitha) village in Muzaffarpur district of Bihar. The operations commissioned on Dec.14 which is also celebrated as ‘National Energy Conservation Day.’
TPRMG constructed this bio-gas plant in association with Grassroots Energy. The plant consumes cow dung which is procured from nearby villages and then it is processed through a Bio-digester to generate methane gas.
This gas is then used to drive a specially designed 5kW generator to generate electricity which is fed to the adjoining 30kW microgrid generating station.
This low-cost energy-efficient technology to produce purified biogas in a cost-effective manner can address diverse market segments currently using conventional energy sources.
The company hope to enable market to switch to low-cost Bio-gas powered electricity without lowering the performance. The residue of the Bio-gas plant is processed to create organic manure for the farmers.
