We can solarize any borehole at any depth to provide water for drinking and irrigation. This will ensure reliable and economical supply of water for communities and farmers. For the past 8 years, we have solarized more than 250 community boreholes across the region.
The Impact of perennial droughts and famines on the livelihoods of underserved communities especially the pastoralist communities has been devastating. Those with access to water have been using diesel fuel to keep the water running. Diesel fuel is not only expensive in the long run but also a health hazard.
Communities with solar powered water pumping systems are more resilient during droughts and famines since they do not have to contend with the purchase of expensive fuel for their generators during such economically hard times.
