Solar pumping is now a proven technology not just for domestic applications but also for large scale industrial systems.

H.E Mutahi Kahiga, governor of Nyeri county has recently commissioned a Solar pumping project that involved retrofitting boreholes with Solar PV systems in Kabati, Nyeri.

In partnership with REREC (Rural Eletricification and Renewable Energy Corporation), Davis & Shirtliff has retrofitted a Solar system that has almost Zero running costs. The green solution is environmentally friendly and sustainable. The 10kW system was installed by a team of Multiskilled technicians lead by the Nyeri branch Manager, Eng.
