Solar Energy to Power Water Supply in Tanzania
OBA, performance payment
The replacement of diesel pump by solar pump has not only reduced the carbon emission from consuming clean energy, but also cut more than 40% of the costs on operation and maintenance (O&M) comparing to diesel options. The lower life-cycle-cost of the solar power has led to a much wider and sustainable utilization of solar water pump, especially in rural areas of Tanzania.
