Tata Power subsidiary inaugurates 5 kW biogas plant in Bihar
TP Renewable Microgrid (TPRMG), a wholly subsidiary of Tata Power, announced that it had inaugurated its first 5kW Bio-gas generating plant at Kamalpura (Basaitha) village in Muzaffarpur district of Bihar. The plant commenced operations on ‘National Energy Conservation Day,’ i.e. 14th December.
TPRMG constructed this 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. The residue of the Bio-gas plant is processed to create organic manure for the farmers.
