RENEWABLE ENERGY PROGRAMS
Conventional energy source's are getting exhausted fast. Unlimited needs and limited resources is the major problem facing by the entire world. So, the development of renewable energy is very important in this time.The Andhyodaya is a forerunner in the area of propogation and innovation of renewable energy projects through out India.
The World is in an energy crisis. Renewable energy sources are the only solution.The Andhyodaya is introducing various programmes regarding to this problems, they are Biogas extension and Solar energy programme.
1. Biogas Extension Programme
As the name itself suggests, a biogas plant uses biowastes to garner domestic fuel. The principle behind this is anaerobic digestion. In this method, the digestion of organic matter is carried out in the absence of air in a deep tank. During the process, anaerobic bacteria convert organic solids to methane, carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulphide, ammonia etc. The degradation of the organic matter takes place in two stages. The first stage involves the acid forming bacteria, which hydrolyses the waste into shorter chain organic compounds like organic alcohols, acids and ammonia. In the second stage, methanogenic bacteria convert these intermediate products into gases. Biogas plants are based on the anaerobic technology, which serve dual purpose of reducing environmental pollution and generating energy.
The Andhyodaya has constructed more than 230000 domestic biogas plants and 1200 institutional biogas plants. We are one of the project partners of the ANERT, Govt. of Kerala State Nodal Agency for Renewable Energy Programme. We also join hands with the Khadi Village Industries Commission (KVIC) in implementing all types of renewable energy programmes in the state of Kerala. In constructing biogas plants we mainly consider rubber latex waste water, cow dung, piggery waste and kitchen waste as the raw materials.
Subsidies are reached to the beneficiaries from Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), Govt. of India and Agency for Non-Conventional Energy and Rural Technology (ANERT)
Biogas plant – is a farmer friendly, both urban and rural friendly, renewable energy technologies. It’s a cost effective and eco friendly mechanism to avail :
- Cooking gas
- Organic manure
- Bio pesticide

Organic Waste Management
One of the major programmes of the Andhyodaya under waste management is the construction of the bio gas plants. We have already constructed thousands bio gas plants under various projects. We are into domestic waste management programme for the past 10 years. We have Two Series of Portable Biogas Plant Products.

We have done a series of installations during the past 10 years and all our customers are very happy about the performance of plants. We have supplied our models to very many families of our state.Our models are very cost effective and user friendly. Many Panchayats and other LSG bodies are contacting us for installation of our waste management biogas plant.We have designed a portable readymade kitchen waste biogas plant for effective biowaste management.
2. ANDHYODAYA SOLAR ENERGY PROGRAMME
Yet another area of activities of Renewable Energy development is solar thermal and photovoltaic. We have distributed around 65 solar water pumps, 1100 streetlights, 2500 home lighting systems in different parts of the state and parts of Tamilnadu and Karnataka.
2.1. Andhyodaya Solar Water Heater
We are into promotion of solar water heater programme for the past one decade. We have by now installed nearly 1,75,000 sqm collector area. This programme is implemented exclusively in market mode
2.2 Andhyodaya Solar Street Lighting
Solar street lighting system is an ideal lighting system for the illumination of streets, squares and cross roads located in areas that are not connected to the power grid. The LED luminaries one having high lumen and long life.Capacity of LED luminaries vary from 10 Watt to 60 Watt.
We have installed more than 3750 street lights in the country.
2.3 Andhyodaya Solar Home Lighting Systems
Solar home lighting systems are ideal sources for providing indoor illumination in remote areas and un-electrified villages. The solar home lighting system essentially consists of the solar home lighting system essentially consists of the solar module, module mounting structure, battery, battery box, charge-controller, luminaries, inter-connecting cables and switches etc.
We have installed more than 6500 HLS in remote areas of the country.
2.4 Andhyodaya Solar Lantern
Solar lantern is a portable lighting system with a battery, CF Lamp and electronic circuitry housed in a casing and SPV module for charging the battery.
We distributed more than 23000 nos. solar lantern to families.
2.5 Andhyodaya Solar Inverter
Solar inverter is a solution for power failure. It is a fully automatic power generator and available in capacities of 150 VA, 500 VA and 1 KVA
By now, we have installed over 5000 solar inverters.
