In the majority of Nepal’s Terai region, farmers face the challenge of unreliable and costly irrigation sources. Some farmers rely on unpredictable seasonal monsoon rain, while others resort to diesel or electric pumps. Not only do diesel pumps drain their pockets, but they also emit harmful carbon dioxide, impacting crop health and the environment. On the other hand, electric pumps are often not functional in remote villages due to lack of access to electricity. Most of the farmers still practice traditional method of farming and lack access to information.
With solar pump, farmers get access to a reliable and cost-effective irrigation solution. Proper irrigation promotes healthier plant growth, leading to higher-quality produce and increased harvests. Moreover, the transition to solar pumps promotes sustainable farming practices and reduces the effect of carbon emissions on the crops and the environment. These systems are financed by our local microfinance partners that lifts the financial burden from the farmers. In addition, these systems are integrated with our smart IoT device ‘Gham Power Krishi Meter’ which records real-time farm data, helps farmers optimize their farm operations and enhance productivity.
A thorough assessment of the farmer's field is conducted to provide expert guidance on selecting the appropriate size of the pump.
Once the farmer confirms interest, our local Microfinance partners provide financing facility on the solar pump.
Installation team commission the system ensuring all components are functioning effectively according to the established standards.
Farmers get access to reliable irrigation source, ultimately resulting in healthier crops, improved agricultural yield and productivity.
