In collaboration with 60Decibels

Solar water pumps have the potential to improve the yields and livelihoods of smallholder farmers, yet little is known about how customers view, value, and interact with their pump.

Between 2016 and 2018, Efficiency for Access partnered with 60 Decibels to survey 375 solar water pump customers in Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania about their experiences. The customer interviews explored user characteristics, background, farming practices, former irrigation and pumping methods, satisfaction with current solar water pumps, quality of life changes, and changes in productivity. The report also benchmarks consumer experience with solar water pumps against other technologies (e.g. solar home systems and cookstoves) deployed in the off-grid energy sector.

This analysis provides valuable insights into customer purchasing decisions and use cases. Most notably, it provides compelling preliminary evidence on the positive impacts of solar water pumps on farmer productivity and quality of life.
