solar pumping system for Bill
Oliver Bill sets up the portable solar pumping system in his farm in Nyando. The solar pumps have less maintenance costs compared to diesel pumps which need fueling now and then.
For the last three years, Future Pump has been working with some 100 farmers in Nyanza and using them to research on how to better the water pump.
Solar pumping systems in the market lack the battery chamber.
For solar, the initial investment is higher than diesel pumps, but solar pumps have less maintenance costs compared to diesel pumps which need fueling now and then.
Successful companies like Future Pump are, therefore, given loans to implement the projects as long as they can raise at least 50 per cent of the amount they are asking for.
