Farmers around the country now have a choice when it comes to operating their pump sets. They can continue to use diesel… or they can turn to something much cheaper, greener - the sun.
L&T’s new solar water pumping system operates on solar photovoltaic panels. It is reliable and maintenance-free across the many months in India when ample sunlight is available. All it needs is a shadow-free area for the panels.
Unveiled at India’s largest electrical and electronics exhibition - ELECRAMA 2014, the solar operated pump set was very well received. Over 150 installations are now operating around the country.
The solar water pumping system is one of L&T’s many offerings that tap into the limitless energy of the sun. L&T also offers ‘D.VA’ – a solar lantern that is durable and emits brighter light. Also, L&T is the industry leader in the country in setting up large solar PV based power plants.
