Punjab Experience
         Before Solar pumps
                   •Erratic Grid Supply
•High cost of Pumping - using Diesel
   •Logistics of getting Diesel to site
             •High Maintenance cost
                 •Regular Supervision
                  •Pollution and Noise
                    •Inefficient Pumps
•Remote site - Expensive to Get grid
Effect in Punjab

•Taken Off 1,700 Solar Pumps In three years
•2004 – 700 pumps to be installed
•Attractive price due to additional subsidy by State Government
•Early pay back period
•Reliable power supply
•More saving due to low maintenance
•Hassle Free
•Demand for Bigger Pump
•Faith in Alternative Source of Power
