It’s firewood over solar water heaters in Siddhapur Taluk

About 80 per cent households depend on firewood as fuel


The houses in the taluk, however,  use wood, paper and sometimes cardboard for heating water.
In villages like Kaydgi and Bilgi of the same Taluk, villagers are completely dependent on firewood for both cooking and heating purposes. “The Taluk has large portions of Acacia Plantations that come under the Forest Department of the State Government. Many cases have been reported in the region where villagers cut the trees from the plantations for firewood. We have Aranya Samiti that works in this regard”, said Mr. Prabhakar M. Kaginelli, Rage Forest Officer of Siddapur Taluk.
