  85,000 Mw from alternate sources

The Ministry of Non Conventional Energy Sources [DNES] says that the installed capacity of energy from renewable sources -wind, solar etc- has crossed 85,000 Mw in India. That’s great news.

But along with that comes the news that DNES is planning to compress biogas and pipe it with natural gas to homes. Wonder if anyone has worked out the costs involved. Hope it’s prohibitive, because GoodNewsIndia believes energy must be locally generated and consumed by local people just as food and harvested rain water.
