Project description

Water pumps play a crucial role in the irrigation market. The widely used electric pumpshowever suffer from low power availability and low voltage. Diesel powered water pumpsare therefore widely deployed to compensate for the shortcomings of electric pumps, but areexpensive to run, and polluting. Solar Water Pumps (SWP) can become a viable solution ifthe challenges of high purchase cost, financing and economic viability can be addressed.Because the economic efficiency of a SWP is directly related to its utilization rate, adoptingan inclusive-ecosystem based approach can be a promising solution to address theeconomic viability of SWPs.
