Location: Anlan Village, Funing County, Wenshan State, Yunnan Province (June 2014)
Project Description: Anlan village is located in Xinhua Town, Funing County, Yunnan Province. The local topography is complex and diverse, and more than 85% of it is mountainous area or semi-mountainous area. Main economic incoming locally depends on cash crops planting such as tea, corn, rice, orange planting etc.
Special topography in Anlan results in fairly weak water holding capacity in farmland, and water shortage becomes a primary problem in planting industry development. In dry seasons the villagers had to adopt traditional diesel engine to irrigate farmland.The yearly cost of diesel powered irrigation was more than 100,000 RMB which was a great burden for the local poor villagers.
Solution: The local government departments including the Funing County Water Conservancy Bureau and Administration of Science &Technology paid great attentions to the irrigation problem. After comprehensive investigations and discussions, they determined to introduce one set of solar pumping system project in Anlan village. Shenzhen Solartech was finally appointed as solar pumping system provider after repeated comparisons. At the water head of 130m, PSC3700 system produces water of 200m3 daily, and solves water supply problem for 164 acres of farmland irrigation and living water of the village completely.
Economic benefit: The system can generate 81,030 kWh of power annually. In its 25 years lifetime, it can reduce 762 tons of standard coal, 335 tons of carbon dioxide, 15.2 tons of sulfur dioxide, 11.4 tons of smoke and 198 tons of lime-ash emissions.
Social benefit: The 37 kW solar irrigation system in Anlan Village, Funing County is the largest solar water pumping project in China so far, and it ensures sufficient daily water irrigation for more than 164 acres of farmland which plants cash crops and 82.3 acre of low-yield oil tea transformation farm which is also a demonstration base. Its economic benefit is very substantial. The introduction of AC solar pumping system promotes the development of the local special industry greatly.
In recent years, Yunnan Province has promoting solar water pumping irrigation system technology heavily. The solar pumping technology accelerates the process of agriculture modernization, the construction of beautiful village and the development of poverty alleviation in Yunnan. As a brand new combination of solar industry with agricultural production. solar pumping system receives serious attention in a plenty of cities and counties in Yunan, and masses of solar pumping systems are under constructions. The successful application of solar pumping system in Yunnan sets a good example in China
