System: 8HP Solar Pumps with Drip Irrigation System and 12.5HP system with Lift Irrigation System
Location: Jharkhand & Maharashtra
Description: Nimbus Solar Solutions has launched a project for installing 8HP Solar Pumps with Drip Irrigation System and 12.5HP system with Lift Irrigation System in both Jharkhand & Maharashtra. The country thrives on the agrarian economy that the project seeks to make more seamless in the long run. In Maharashtra & Jharkhand, the farmers are becoming well-equipped with the irrigation systems to replace the dependence on the grid to generate extra revenue. In this project, a solar pump-powered drip irrigation system is employed, which provides drip irrigation onto 25 acres of land in Jharkhand. This has helped the farmers to cultivate more cash crops than just one crop throughout the year, thereby increasing their income from INR 30,000 – 40,000 to INR 1 Lakh. In Maharashtra, Nimbus Solar Solutions has achieved the same with a lift irrigation system that lifts water onto a hill from a stream 100 metres below it. The system is highly beneficial for the farmers as it has cut down on the irregularity of the water supply, which could previously hamper the process of hassle-free farming.
