  • Solar Pumps for Sustainable Irrigation in India

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Approach:

    Researchers in this study put forward a budget-neutral approach for incentivising the adoption of solar pumps in India.

    The study also looks at parity between solar and electric pumps from economic perspective, i.e. NPV (net present value) of the expenses to be incurred by the farmer. 

    It further explores mechanisms for promoting the deployment of solar pumps, and the need to assess the suitability of solar pumps in providing sustainable irrigation, before they are scaled up.
