The Company has an important role in developing the concept of water-energy nexus and promoting optimum groundwater usage.
A novel financing scheme is offered to farmers for employing energy-efficient pumps in exchange of their existing sets to help economise groundwater pumping to suit current cropping patterns.
Farmers gain as their monthly spend on energy is reduced, arising out of economic pumping. Concurrently, environmental cause is served as over-pumping is avoided, thereby protecting the water table and local ecology. As a unique step, the pumps are metered to account for the energy consumed.
