Senegal Micro-Utility Irrigation Project

Jul. 24, 2015—Short video montage describing The Earth Insititute’s Sustainable Engineering Lab’s installation and operation of a pilot solar PV irrigation system in Senegal. This pilot is unique in Senegal for its pre-paid payment system and for sharing solar energy across multiple farmers without battery storage to meet daily irrigation demands through a simple, smart-control web-app. Funding was provided by USAID's Powering Agriculture initiative.
