Devotees of Sai Baba ( Shirdi ) firmly believe in the many miracles that he is supposed to have performed during his life time
“ Shirdi temple trust to generate electricity using footsteps of devotees “
As Shirdi-based Sai Baba Temple is set to celebrate its centenary year from October 1, the trust is planning to go as eco-friendly as possible. The trust has come up with various initiatives to go green.
"This project will be the first in India. Over 50,000 devotees visit the temple every day.
If we convert their walking energy into electrical energy, we will be able to light bulbs and fans which are installed near the queue.
The first phase will be completed within two months. If the model becomes successful, then it can set an example for such initiatives to be implemented in public places."
"We will be installing tiles which can convert the energy when you walk. The phase one will be ready in two months.
We will be installing 200 tiles of 2 X 2 feet. On an average, 20 watt second energy is converted by a single person. The unit of converter energy will depend upon the overall footfalls."
WHAT NEXT ?
· If Shirdi experiment is successful ( with blessings of Sai Baba ) , then we can expect a large number of Public Places to come forward to install such electricity generating tiles . These could include Railway Station Platforms , Cinema Halls , Schools and Colleges , Commercial Offices ( including government offices ) , Hospitals, Airports, Malls, Temples / Churches / Mosques, Marriage Halls, Jogging Tracks etc
· Expect the daily visits to Sai Baba Temple to go up to 100,000 per day – doubling the daily donations , which will enable the Sai Trust to extend the project !
In my following blog , I had talked about electricity generation by tyre pressure of running cars on a highway embedded with piezo-electric pads :
Not satisfied with harnessing the energy of walking , scientists are also working on producing electricity utilizing the body-heat / speech of humans ( though in minute amount )
Given the number of Netas and Experts shouting at each other on TV channels , India can become power surplus if we harness their decibels to produce electricity !
