TP Renewable Microgrid (TPRMG), a wholly subsidiary of Tata Power, today 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 2020.
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. It is interesting to note that the residue of the Bio-gas plant is processed to create organic manure for the farmers.
Speaking on this occasion, Mr Praveer Sinha, CEO & MD, Tata Power, said, “It is a proud moment for us, we are constructively moving ahead with our agenda to be the foremost Renewable Energy Company of India and continue to support the nation to achieve its green energy goals. We would like to congratulate our team to complete this project in a record team and be able to commence the operation of this plant on National Energy Conservation Day.”
“It’s a major achievement for us. We are proud to collaborate with Grassroot Energy for our first Bio-gas plant. With this low-cost energy-efficient technology to produce purified biogas in a cost-effective manner, we will address diverse market segments currently using conventional energy sources. We shall enable them to switch to low-cost Bio-gas powered electricity without lowering their performance.” said, Mr Manoj Gupta, CEO, TP Renewable Microgrid,
This Bio-Gas plant was inaugurated in the presence the village Pradhan, the landowner, the Grassroot Energy team along with TPRMG’s team.
TPRMG’s focus now lies on developing and commissioning its Bio CNG plant in rural part of India.
