According to reports, with power crisis crippling the State, educational institutions are looking at an alternative mode of sourcing electricity, so that the studies of the students are not affected during night hours.
Recently, a biomass gasifier was installed at Golden Gates Matriculation Higher Secondary School here so that electricity produced from it could help in running 250 to 300 tube lights or a 15 HP motor capacity.
The gasifier runs on agri produce waste such as coconut shells, husk, fibres, groundnut shell and castor stalks to produce electricity in an efficient manner.
The gasifier, innovated and designed by Rai Singh Dahiya of Rajasthan was installed at many institutions and agriculture fields for running the generators.
The Rs. 3 lakh generator can be run with agricultural waste that is easily available everywhere. A demonstration was also held on the school premises recently.
