Title: Solar water pumping system implemented in Turkish village
A solar water pumping system was designed for and implemented in the poor village of Süleymanli in Turkey. The system pumps water to a storage tank and water is delivered from this tank to homes. When solar power is insufficient for pumping and at night, the system automatically shifts to the electric grid. The project was supported by the German embassy in Ankara.
