SOLAR PUMPING FOR SURFACE IRRIGATION IN A VILLAGE IN UP
Updated: Mar 4, 2020
Solar based Irrigation can revolutionize the lives of people in Indian villages
ERF implemented solar pumping based surface irrigation project in Mahoba, Bundelkhand with support from Tata Trust.
Solar pump irrigation is a promising technology application in Mahoba due to unavailability of grid power and expensive diesel fuels.
The project was designed for community management with a usage charge. Surplus revenue was to be used for other development activities in each village. We worked with communities to help them understand the technology, its impact, and how to use it to minimize water wastage.
Access to reliable water is big boon for Indian farmers
