Technology For Development
Linux Friends' solar team succesfully installed another borehole solar pump for the borehole at the Association's premise. After testing the solar pump in a 200litres drum filled with water, the pump was sent into the borehole.
Inaddition, installing this pump was met with less difficulty since it was the second pump the team was actually working with.
Also,the pump runs with energy coming directly from the solar panels. Four solar batteries will be installed but in the meantime, we observe to see how long the pump can go with direct energy from the panels.
