Solar Panel Water Scheme in Gambia
This well is for a large community, with a depth varying from 35 meters to 150 meters. The well is dug by an engine-drilling rig. It can provide water continuous, to a large village or to a group of 4 to 5 small villages. It will serve in average between 500 to 1500 people daily. It is equip with a solar pumping system that lifts water from the boreholes and supplies it to four to six water tabs usually at public places within the community. The water supply tabs usually placed at mosques, the market places, schools and community gardens. Household who have the means can connect their house to the main water distribution pipe that run across the community for their own water supply.
In addition to running the pump to bring up the water, the solar panels generate electricity, which is routed to local schools, mosques and to communal places.
One Solar Panel Water Well costs £20,000 in Gambia.
Why not join together with family and friends to raise the amount and earn the sadaqah jariyaa of supporting an entire community and bringing them back to life.
Solar Panel Water Scheme in Pakistan
In areas where ground water is so scarce, sometimes the only solution is to build environmentally friendly and sustainable solar powered electric pumps.
- A total of 38.5 million people in Pakistan lack access to clean and secure drinking water causing families to use contaminated water sources.
- Children are particularly vulnerable to waterborne diseases.
- Pakistan ranks number 9 in the list of top 10 countries with lowest access to clean water.
For most of us, access to water is as simple as turning on a tap. In drought-affected Tharparkar, in Pakistan’s Sindh province, accessing clean safe drinking water is one of the biggest challenges faced by communities. Many villages in Thar lack basic facilities, including access to water. In rural Tharparkar, there is little over 250 mm of annual rainfall and limited irrigation. That means that people in this area are restricted to groundwater in order to meet their needs.
The task of collecting water falls mainly to women and children in these communities. Usually women and children would spend three to five hours a day fetching water from wells from human and livestock needs.
During the dry season, some people need to travel at least 3km or more to meet their basic water requirements, and the painstaking daily exercise of pulling out water manually from a depth of 250-300 meters takes a real toll both physical and mental.
Placed in desert, this solar well provides running water to the homes of up to 1,500 people and over 1,000 livestock.
The pumps are submerged into existing wells and will pump into a reservoir tank which allows for continued access and storage. This means reliable access to water, without the need to pull it up by hand.
Conditions for solar energy are good in this region, which makes solar pumps are a practical solution, especially for the remote villages and homes that are far from a power grid. Besides offering access to needed water, these pumps will save time and energy for those who are gathering the water. That means children will be able to attend school, women can use their time more productively.
In addition to running the pump to bring up the water, the solar panels generate electricity, which is routed to local schools, mosques and communal places.
Let’s work together to ensure these families are given the basics of clean drinking water.
