25 Dec 2019-Solar powered pump



The solar water pump is a water lifting system powered with electricity generated by solar panel. Solar pump directly connects with solar panel through a mppt solar pump controller. Whenever sunlight drops on solar panel, solar submersible pump starts lifting the water from ground.

The Government of India has implemented successfully an innovative scheme in the Integrated Action Plan districts for select tribals and backward districts in which a single phased 1 Hp Solar powered energy based submersible pump is installed in a high yielding borewell which already has a hand pump.  In this scheme, water is drawn from the bore well by two methods. In addition to the traditional hand pump method, an additional water pump which can run by solar power or conventional electricity is installed by using a specially designed water chamber. The use of solar pumps is useful in areas in areas with non-availability or erratic available of electric power.  Water pump from the system can be stored in an elevated tank and water is provided to each house through tap connections.

The Ministry of New and Renewable energy provides partial funding and the rest of the cost is bore by Centre and State. This scheme is designed specifically to provide rural water supplies.

Due to the effort of LOK MANCH coordinator Kailash, Pipliyapani do not have to worry about water for the next 25 years. This scheme was introduced by the Government in 2014. But very few have the knowledge of such innovative schemes available for the development of the people.  This is the work of the LOK MANCH, making use of available judicial resources to empower people to access their basic rights. The groundwork was laid down by the LOK MANCH coordinator Kailash but it was the will of the village people which made this happen. All the documentation process were taken care by the people of Pipliypani under the guidance of LOK MANCH coordinator Kailash. They put pressure on the Adivasi Up Yojana in the Nandurbar district to take necessary steps to implement the scheme. By 2018, the solar panels were installed with each house receiving two individual solar panels for their usage
