Futurepump is promoting "future-proof" farming in Mozambique, where smallholder farmers are facing increasing temperatures and less predictable rainfall. Solar irrigation helps farmers to make the most of every growing season, giving them more security in a changing climate.
Claro Energy's solar water pumps are a great solution in remote, off-grid regions. Plus, farmers can earn extra income by selling surplus energy. Another Claro innovation: e-rickshaws that bring pay-per-use solar panels to farmers, who can then irrigate using RFID cards, cash or micro-finance.
