More crop per drop – Oonnati PAYG Community Solar Pumping Systems

100 million farmers in India depend on expensive and polluting diesel pumps for irrigation. Solar pumps are a cost-effective and sustainable solution, but 90% of farmers cannot afford them. Oorja deploys PAYG Community Solar Pumping Systems for groups of smallholder farmers. Digital flowmeter and payment technology enable a pay-per-use model without upfront cost to farmers. They access affordable water services year-round, reduce irrigation costs, grow high-value crops and double their incomes.
