Solar Powered Irrigation for Small-holder Farmers / Clean Energy, Climate Smart Irrigation, Finance

Irrigation is basic necessity of farmers in Nepal. Solar irrigation is an effective solution to ensure year-round water supply while using clean energy. But it is not accessible to the farmers due to high upfront cost. We provide solar water pumps with rent to own financial model that de-risks farmers. We currently have 98 operational solar water pumps installed at 38 districts of Nepal benefitting over 5000 people everyday. Our systems produce 3million liters of water each day for irrigation, drinking and sanitation purposes. Installtion of solar water pumps in farm help achieve at least 3 SDG-Clean Energy , Income Growth & Nutritious Food.
