Up with the Sun "Solar Energy and Agriculture"
My name is Gurwindar Singh, I live in Gurdas pur village in Amritsar Punjab. I am a farmer. Before some time due to lack of good crops, I was dipped in debt. My all crops became impaired as it was not raining on time. To run a water pump for cultivation, spent a lot of electricity, which used to cost high electricity bill. For that I had to borrowed money from my neighbors.
But since I have started using solar energy, I started using water pump for my crops, so that my crops started getting better and now I do not even have to wait for the rain. As well I am also getting many benefits to use solar.
- Solar energy saves farmers money.
- Irrigation becomes much easier.
- It becomes possible for farmers to get off the electrical grid.
