Dear *|FNAME|*,

The statistics are in!

The sunlight pump improves the livelihoods of smallholder farmers

Highly efficient solar water pumps are among the products with the greatest potential impact on the lives of millions of people.
Why? Because solar water pumps – like the sunlight pump – deliver modern irrigation and drinking water services to off-grid populations without polluting the environment.
  • 40% of the global population relies on agriculture as its main source of income.
  • 10% increase in agricultural productivity for smallholder farmers in Africa leads to a 7% reduction in poverty. 
  • Irrigation is a critical tool to increase yields. Larger areas need to be put under irrigation to meet the needs of a growing population.
A recent study from India reports that:
  • 45% of farmers using solar pumps saw an increase of 50% or more in their annual incomes compared to rain-fed irrigation. 
The benefits of the sunlight pump are obvious!

See in the video above, how the sunlight pump changed the life of Kenyan farmer Patrick Mukuna. For smallholder farmers like him, the sunlight pump has many benefits: irrigation improves yields, reduces vulnerability to changing rainfall patterns and enables multiple cropping practices. The results are improved livelihoods and food security at zero emissions. 

The sunlight pump configuration tool

There are numerous economic feasibility studies on solar pumps. Assessing the economic viability of a solar pumping system is a complex undertaking and the FAO recommends to study it on a case-by-case basis. ennos has developped the sunlight pump configuration tool to exactly do that. 

Check it out:
  1. Design your solar pumping system according to local conditions
  2. Calculate the economic break-even compared to a diesel pump
  3. Calculate the annual CO2 savings of your system
