Solar Powered Water Pumps have always been out of reach to small scale farmers in Kenya. The cost of solar pumps in Kenya in Kenya usually range above Ksh 100,000 a figure many small scale farmers in Kenya can barely afford. However, thanks to innovations in technology, Graduate Farmer has launched a new affordable solar pump called the GF1 Solar Pump Kit that is geared to empower young farmers in Kenya save and make profit in farming. 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.
