The Solar-water-pump for Chencha

Flowing water in Chencha

Previously washing dishes, showers, cleaning or watering the seedlings was difficult and the water was taken out of a small river that flows through the lower portion of the property. This river is 120 meters away, and 20 meters below the main house: You need to get water in water containers before use. A very tedious and time consuming work!
So we came up with the idea to provide the house not only with electricity but with water. A solar energy powered water pump should be used. Due to the lack of communication between us and the local solar company "Solar green power" a pump from Germany had to be bought. In early August 2012 we found a company in Regensburg which is producing high performance solar water pumps. We ordered that pump to Ethopia and paid it with project funds. In Ethopia the Ecopia team should pick up the well packed and about 140kg heavy crate at the airport. more...
