1. Solar Electricity Generation (Category: Environment, Education)
With about 300 clear and sunny days in a year, India has massive potential to drastically reduce dependence on polluting, fossil fuels for energy generation and move to solar power generation. This will be extremely beneficial to the environment and economy of the country. As a small step in this direction, the Khinvasara Parivar Trust decided to help an educational institute reduce their electricity bills by donating a solar power generating system.

Members of the Trust ideated, conceptualised and planned the entire project. On 15th August 2018, Khinvasara Parivar Trust handed over a "3.25 Kw Solar Power" genrating stsem to Jeevan Vidya Mandir School, Ghodegaon, Maharashtra. This project has been executed by Solarich System Pune. Mr. Pranav Shah of Solarich System developed the system and was also present at its inauguration. The total cost of the project is Rs.3 lakhs.

The life of this system is 25 years and through net metering system will save on the electricity bill of the school. Expected savings annually are approx Rs.45000 for the next 25 years. Along with financial savings, the project will also save approx 2500 trees from being cut down or 65 tonnes of coal which would have been used for generating thermal based MSEB electricity.

Through this project, the Khinvasara Parivar Trust has succeeded in helping the school and has also made a solid contribution towards a Clean Environment.

For the inauguration function held on 15th August, 2018, Khinvasara Family members along with Mrs.Sunanda Kale, Mr. Ajitseth Kale and many other dignitaries were present. This is the first Solar project in area constructed for social institute. Salient points about this project are given below:

1. Shet Tale (Farm Pond) (Category: Environment)
According to the International Water Institute, over 70% of water drawals are on account of agriculture. This figure shows the importance of availability of water for sustenance of farming. If water is available, crops will survive, farmers will thrive and the food chain will sustain. In times of drought, the lack of water has a major impact on farmers and a cascading effect on every person. This was very apparent over the last couple of years in several drought-hit districts of Maharashtra.

With the intention of alleviating the hardships caused by drought to some extent, the Trust embarked upon the task of building a farm pond in the Shantivan area of Arvi village, Zilla Beed in Maharashtra. Salient points about this project are given below:

Location: Shantivan, Arvi village, Beed zilla
Storage Capacity: 88 lakh litres
Cost: ₹ 2,85,000
Beneficiary Farmer: Mr.Kakasaheb Shinde


This project was possible with the untiring support of Mr.Deepak Nagargoje from Shantivan.

Year 2012

1. CFL Bulb Distribution (Category: Environment)
CFLs use significantly less energy -- 75 percent less energy than incandescent light bulbs (the regular bulbs). A 20-watt CFL gives light equivalent to a 75-watt incandescent bulb. Ofcourse, using less energy means electricity bills get reduced. This also reduces toxic emissions from coal-powered energy generation plants since the energy consumption reduction leads to a reduction in energy generated. To create awareness about this and to demonstrate with practical use to a rural populace, the Trust organised an event to replace the incandescent bulbs of an entire village - Dhakale, maharashtra - with CFL bulbs on 27th May, 2012.
The event was well received and got complete co-operation from the villagers of Dhakale. A few weeks before the event, a thorough survey was conducted (by students of B.D.Kale college and Trust members) to get an idea of energy consumption in the village by individual households. On the day of the event, more than 200 incandescent bulbs were replaced by CFLs and the event was graced by the presence of Mrs. Anita Nighot (Head, Ghodegaon Panchayat Samiti), Mr.Bansode (Representative of electricity board) and Mrs.Dangat (Sarpanch - Dhakale village). Officials of the regional electricity board also commended the initiative taken by Khinvasara Trust and encouraged the members to keep up the good work. The Trust was ably assisted by Prof. Jadhav, Principal of B.D.Kale College and his students in organising the event.
