Mangalore, August 14th: A mobile canteen, which is operated by Kateel near the bus station, uses the solar system for all its electricity needs.
Arun Kumar Malligeangadi, a former member of Kateel Panchayat, has converted 407 pickups into a canteen. A solar panel is attached to the roof. The refrigerator, blender mill, oven, exhaust fan and other equipment in the canteen are powered by solar power.
Food is also prepared with solar energy. A 500 liter tank for water is installed on top of the vehicle. The used water flows into a 300 liter tank that is attached to the floor of the bus.
The chassis of the vehicle is being converted into a space where consumers can sit and eat. There is also a table and a fan. The mobile canteen will be built at a cost of Rs 9.25 Lac. Many film producers have used this mobile canteen for outdoor shots in rural areas and forests.
Arun Kumar Kateel, owner of the canteen, says: “This mobile canteen is my idea, which was put into operation two years ago. In the next few days I will also be repairing a television. I have decided to give the Indian army one percent of the income from this canteen. “
