Nanay resting after fetching water from the spring
The Paang Bundok solar water pumping project is now in its final stage of completion, as the wind component has now been shelved for future development.
The final component is the installation of the water pump which will then complete the project. As of now, there are issues with the supplier for the procurement of a new Lorentz pump, and we fervently hope that this will be addressed soon enough.
The other major components - solar panel and inverter were already installed previously and is now awaiting for the water pump installation for the system to be up and running and providing drinking and household water supply to the villagers.
Again our warmest thanks to all those who supported the project and we hope that you can also support other community-based renewable energy projects that SIBAT will be pursuing in other off-grid rural poor areas.
Below is the link to SIBAT's renewable energy program developing other community-based renewable energy projects such as micro-hydro, solar, wind-solar hybrid water pumping projects:
