Project Update: Solar Panels Repaired & Installed

Water source of Paang Bundok
Water source of Paang Bundok

Project rehabilitation is almost completed for the solar water pumping system, the repaired solar panels were relocated near the community including installation of transmission line from the source to the new location which is 500 meters away.  A new inverter and the repaired solar panels were installed near the community so as to secure the system and avoid damage by untoward incidents including lightning. 

The next component to be installed will be a new pump --- the old pump was not repairable as found out by the project team.  For now, the team is in the process of procuring a new pump which will provide the most efficient water pumping system and for the Paang Bundok villagers to enjoy drinking and water supply year round.  After pump installation, the next activities will be for assessing /testing and conduct of necessary repairs of the water distribution line from the water supply to the households.

The next site visit will entail testing of the new pump, and once functional, the team will now proceed to testing and repair of the water distribution lines from the water source to the households.  A parallel pipe distribution will be set upon installation of the grip-pump.

The Paang Bundok villagers are really looking forward to the completion of the solar water pumping system!
