inverter converts DC current from the solar array into AC current to drive the pump.
'The Federal Government would be interested in partnering with the company provided the solar pumping
machine is durable, affordable knowing fully well that most of our farmers are subsistence and poor farmers', the Minister stated.
A portable solar pumping
system is fixed with 4KW panels that can operate on various terrain and water sources.
The most basic form of solar pumping
consists of a small direct-current (DC) solar pump, a pump controller, one or more solar modules, a replacement well cap, electrical wiring, and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) piping.
Customers can operate and monitor the solar pumping
system remotely as the Veichi SI10 supports GRPS and GPS function.
"There was a general lack of awareness of the technology and many of us were not up to date with developments in solar pumping

The maximum cost of a solar pumping
system for deeper wells can reach up to $70,000, while the cost for shallower wells runs at about $10,000, according to Al-Saqqaf.
One of the economical ways is the solar pumping
which can bring revolution in agriculture and provide farmers energy independence through solar pumping
