Solar Panel Water and Power Centre
Our Solar Panel Water and Power Centres are specially designed to provide water and electricity to whole communities. These centres can provide 2,500 people and livestock with fresh, clean water every day, eliminating the threat of waterborne diseases that come with drinking contaminated water. They’re also a sustainable source of electricity and power for schools, mosques and the entire community

These incredible feats of engineering not only provide running water to the homes of up to 1,500 people and 1,000 livestock, but also supply electricity and power to schools and mosques as well!
Placed in desert areas, the Solar Panel Water & Power Centre can fill a reservoir that holds enough to hold 3 days worth of water to ensure they don’t go without on those cloud-covered days.
In the desert areas of Pakistan, water can only be found hundreds of metres below the ground, so a traditional hand pump or even a bucket and rope system just won’t work. Our solar panel system will harness the sun's energy to bring water up and into a holding tank. From this store, the clean water is also piped directly to homes, with each household allocated a fair amount based on how many people live there. Farmers can also access the tank to water their crops and animals.
As well as running the pump to bring up the water, the solar panels generate electricity, which can be routed to other buildings such as schools, mosques, and even power centres where people can charge appliances such as torches and radios.
All this means that entire villages have the basic supplies needed to for healthy lives and to work and learn their way out of poverty.
