Powering Agriculture: An Energy Grand Challenge for Development supports the development and deployment of clean energy innovations that increase agriculture productivity and stimulate low carbon economic growth in the agriculture sector of developing countries to help end extreme poverty and extreme hunger.

From the full article at News Ghana:

RainMaker said its high-efficiency positive displacement pump lifts up to 7,000 liters of water per day from wells up to 100 meters deep, offering substantial value compared to higher priced systems that can lift water only 10 meters.

Using energy from the portable 120-watt solar panel and battery bank, RainMaker pumps enough water to irrigate a one-acre farm and support livestock and household water needs like drinking, cooking and cleaning.
