Nirvau Vengeri — a collective forum of 102 houses in the city corporation limit is all set to achieve a new milestone in waste disposal and energy conservation. After the successful initiative of organic vegetable cultivation at houses, Nirvau is now set to install solar panels in the houses that fall under the residential association to set a new model in energy conservation.

The association had already brought down the electricity charge at houses by making own LED bulbs. Under the new initiative, solar panels will be set up at fifty houses and biogas plants at the remaining houses. The scheme is executing under the Farmers Producers Company Limited under the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development.

A sum of Rs 40,000 is required to set up a solar panel at a house. The solar power will be used to operate lights, television, computer and fans in the houses. Of the 40,000, the beneficiaries need to pay only Rs 10,000 as initial investment and remaining money can be remitted in installments within a year to the Farmers Producers' Organisation.

Babu Paramabth, Project director, Niravu Farmers Producers Company Ltd said solar panels will be set up at 50 houses and biogas plant in remaining houses. "We have already completed installation of solar panels at 18 houses. The selection of the houses were made on the basis of availability of sun light. All the houses produces required vegetables for their need and never buys from the outside shops. The latest move aims to convert our residential area as a model one in energy conservation and waste disposal. Biogas plants setting up at fifty houses will also dispose the generated waste from all the 102 houses in the areas," he said.
