If you want to use your biogas digester to power an engine, it should be producing at least10 meter cube of biogas per day. To generate 1 kWh (kilowatt hour) of electricity with a generator, about 1m3 biogas is required. So the 10m3 biogas will generate 10kwh of electricity.

If people can run petrol gen on cooking gas, it is also possible to do same with biogas. Great idea.
