Home - The World’s First Solar Irrigation Cooperative at Dhundi, Gujarat

Our company has played a pivotal role in changing the dynamics of farming in our nationby building the world's first solar irrigation cooperative at a small village - Dhundi in Gujarat. Working at grass root level, enabled us in gaining the trust of farmers thereby directly garnering the support of NGO’s, the local power distribution company & the government.

Advantages of Grid connected solar irrigation pump at a glance :

  • Cost effective as no electricity bills

This case study served as a lighthouse demonstration project and is now being scaled up all across the state as well as across the country through a national policy on grid connected solar pumps.
