Haryana to set up more biogas plants in state

BS Reporter  |  New Delhi/ Chandigarh 

The Haryana government has formulated a Rs 85-crore project for setting up 50,000 family size biogas plants to harness the potential of generating biogas for cooking and organic manure in the fields.

According to an official release, Haryana Power and Renewable Energy Minister Mahender Partap Singh has said these biogas plants would be set up by the financial institutions/companies with their own investment through Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) within three years. The cost of the plants would be recovered from the farmers through one-time down payment.

Haryana Renewable Energy Development Agency (Hareda) had invited Expression of Interest (EoI) from companies to undertake the project of 50,000 family size biogas plants having capacity of two, three, four and six cubic metre.
