SOLAR IRRIGATION SYSTEM READY FOR INAUGURATION
The first prototype of a no-inverter, no-storage-battery solar-powered irrigation system is ready for the "official switch-on" by President Rody Duterte.
We will just await for the available date of the President to formally mark the start of a new era in small irrigation systems in the country.
With this new system, the farmers will be freed from the costly process of pumping water from small water impoundings and rivers using diesel-fueled pumps.
