Integrated Water and Energy Technologies (IWET)
Affordable, modern and clean energy to marginalised communities
IWET distributes and installs mobile solar-powered water pump systems to small-holder farmer groups in the Mchinji District and solar-for-home systems to households. Farmers use the mobile pumps to pump water from shallow wells for irrigation during the dry season. The systems are sold to farmers using a flexible payment method over a period of 6 months.
The enterprise also conducts training for farmers focusing on use of solar-powered technologies and entrepreneurship skills. Farmers also receive agri-technical advice through a mobile messaging platform developed by IWET to ensure continuous support.
ACADES supports IWET in development of training manuals for entrepreneurship and training small-holder farmers to improve productivity.
Green Impact Technologies (GIT) supplies solar panels and accessories to construct the mobile solar-powered pumps.
