Showing clean energy solutions in new and unique locations, especially when coupled with people in the picture is likely to elicit a positive emotional response and to create a ‘new story’.
WHAT IT SHOWS: In 2011, an NGO, Grameen Shakti, constructed a bio gas plant which cost Shaundri and her family about 27,000 Bangladeshi Taka. Shaundri and her family use the plant for their personal consumption including cooking. Earlier, they had to use dung cakes and dry leaves for cooking. The family makes bio gas out of cow dung every day.
Shuandri feels that using bio gas is a much cleaner and cheaper option as there is less smoke while cooking. There is no accumulation of tar as well. She feels that although every household in the village should opt for a bio gas plant, given the high cost, not every one has the means to buy one.
