Kota Engineer Saves Rs 2 Lakh on Bills; Generates Electricity From Waste on His Dairy Farm

Kota Engineer Saves Rs 2 Lakh on Bills; Generates Electricity From Waste on His Dairy Farm

After completing engineering, Amanpreet Singh turned to pursue his passion. Watch how he turned his 50-acre dairy farm into a sustainable facility, where he uses farm waste to generate electricity and save on power bills.

Hailing from Kota in Rajasthan, Amanpreet Singh always had a keen interest in agriculture and dairy farming. So, after completing his engineering in electrical and electronics engineering, he decided to pursue his passion for dairy farming.

In 2014, he did a dairy science course and thereafter worked in companies like Mother Dairy, Amul, and Nestle. A year later, he pursued a dairy automation course at Tel Aviv University in Israel.

After returning from Israel, he established a dairy farm ‘Gau Organics’ in his hometown with his brothers, Uttam Jyot and Gagandeep. Through this business, he sells milk and other dairy products — such as butter, organic jaggery, honey, cow dung cakes, manures, and more.

But what’s unique about this dairy farm is its sustainability practices.

Interestingly, Singh’s farm produces 70 percent of its own electricity using waste. When Singh realised that the electricity cost on the farm was way too high, he came up with a sustainable alternative to have a self-sustained facility.

For this, he installed two biogas plants of 40 KW in his 50-acre dairy farm. With this, he generates Rs 1.5–1.8 lakh-worth electricity every month. “Right now, we are producing 80 KW of power uninterrupted,” he says. To achieve this, they collect cow dung and urine and send it to the digester of these biogas plants. It is then converted into electricity.

But this isn’t the only way Gau Organics is thinking of a sustainable future. Apart from generating its own electricity, it also has rainwater harvesting and a 60 KW solar power plant.
