A Coimbatore-based company has developed a power generating and storing kit which generates electricity from motor vehicles, including two-wheelers, cars, buses, trucks and tractors for domestic and commercial purposes.

If the device V-Kit is fitted in a motor car or a two-wheeler running more than 50 kms a day, it will generate and store electricity enough to run lights and fan in an average household for about four to five months, except fridge and motor pumps, said Vasudevan Tachoth, founder of the V-Kit.

The V-Kit device fitted in various vehicles uses the ampere capacity of the alternator of the motor vehicles. The kit uses extra ampere capacity released by the vehicle alternator for charging V-kit.

When the kit is being charged no noticeable increase in the fuel consumption has been observed in the vehicle due to the installation of V-kit. Power can be converted and stored into rechargeable batteries by using his V-KIT and can be utilised for domestic use, he said.

If we put a kit in two-wheelers and run 40 km per day, we can produce electricity to illuminate an average household for nearly four hours, in case we use the LED lamps developed by him for this purpose.

If the kit is fitted in a motor car and running more than 50 kms per day, it will be enough to run lights and fan in an average household except fridge and motor pumps.

He said that if the government or any private institutions come forward to assist him in research, as subsidy or grant, the company is ready to share the technology for research.
