Save Big With The New GF1 Solar Water Pump

The complete pump kit is cost at only Ksh 35,000.

Farming is never an easy job as most Kenyans may think from the agribusiness success stories read on the media. There are a lot of challenges that surround farming that can make anyone, even those who have enough capital to quit. Many factors are involved in the success of every farmer you see and the most important of them all is access to water!

A typical solar powered pumping system consists of a solar panel array that powers an electric motor, which in turn powers a bore or surface pump. The water is often pumped from the ground or stream into a storage tank that provides a gravity feed, so energy storage is not needed for these systems. Solar powered pumping systems are a cost-effective alternative to agricultural wind turbines for remote area water supply.
