VISIT TO TERI GRAM GURGAON
Florets – the Eco Club of AFSSS organized a visit to Teri Gram on 02.09.15. Three teachers along with 66 students from Classes XI and XII science section visited Teri Gram – Retreat and we all had a wonderful time there. Teri Gram is a live example of complete usage of Renewable Energy. The whole retreat has used natural resources at its water heaters to provide 2000 hitres of hot water to the living quarters. Photovoltaic panels help capture solar energy and store it in a tank of batteries which is the main source of power at night mukteshwar which is twice efficient than normal gasifiers. Natural Water purification method using Bamboos was done and the same water was used in gardens to water plants. Natural air conditioners are being maintained keeping in mind that temperature below 4km then Earth’s Crust remains at 250C – 260 C. cool air form the underground tunnels helped by two blowers fitted in the tunnels rush in to replace the warm air.
A great deal of thought and planning has gone into the construction of this complex at gual pahari. Overall it was a great experience for each one of us.
