Solar Pumps for Farmers

Once installed, solar water pumps do not have recurring costs of polluting thermal electricity or dirty diesel fuel. In addition, it will help farmers generate additional income by selling extra energy back to the electricity board. Not only will it provide all-day hassle-free clean energy access to farmers where electricity supply is unreliable, it could also gradually elminate massive agricultural subsides, restoring financial health to our power sector!

Meanwhile, solar rooftops continue to reduce electricity bills for residential households. To ensure India meets its ambitious 100 GW installed solar targets by 2022, focusing on decentralised renewable energy solutions is crucial. Only a people-powered movement can now make solar rooftops, and rural solar solutions like solar pumps, a reality!
