This man with no electricity connection at home lights up his village during power cuts The government employee helps fill up water tanks and lights up homes with the help of his Bullet bike during power outages.

Palakkad: The hike in power tariff may have upset many, but not Pullapatta Kizhakekara Puthenveettil Harinarayan of Kalladikode here. Because the KSRTC driver has no power connection at home.

Harinarayanan generates enough and more electricity using his two-wheeler. He and his bike are also available for assistance when the neighborhood faces a power outage.

The government employee helps fill up water tanks and lights up homes with the help of his Bullet bike during power outages. He also assists in irrigating and drying up wells. His pump can draw water from as deep as 10 meters and push it up to 25 meters.

He uses a water pump and a dynamo on his 1982 model diesel Bullet for such purposes. The bike can run up to 82 km on a liter of diesel and hence, the cost is also limited.

The bike, in a stationary state, can generate a day's requirement of electricity for a house by running its engine for an hour. The engine and dynamo provide 24 volts of power.

The battery can store 12 volts when water is being pumped up. Several people in the locality utilize the facility to generate power and to pump up water.

The 43-year-old, who hasn't cleared his school final exam, is now planning to build an exercise machine, which can produce electricity. The bike facility has cost him just Rs 3,000. It is also available for the fire force.
