Here is some news related to Bihar’s experiments with solar water pumping. While the CM Nitish Kumar has installed solar power at his residence, he is also looking to promote solar water pumping as an option.
In summary, these solar pumps will help farmers realise their dream of growing at least three crops a year. This system is also believed to be simple, low cost, highly sustainable and non-polluting, and also
saves 75% water, 70% labour and still yields 30% higher harvest – now thats a lot of benefits that one solution can offer. And knowing that in Bihar agriculture does play a crucial role for development and livelihoods – with a majority of the population dependent on it as main employment, any solution that works on eliminating the need for electricity or reduce dependence on erratic power supply would be more than welcome
We look forward to establishing links with major solar pump suppliers in our bid to increase our installation base for solar pumps in Bihar, MP, UP and Rajasthan. Please email in your expression of interests to email@example.com
