What on Earth Georgia, ep. 8: Pumping water with solar energy
Solar-powered water pipes could bring water to remote villages.
“Georgia is a country of agriculture but the majority of land plots remain unused because of the lack of water sources. With the solar powered water pump system, every single land could be used to start a prosperous business”, says Mahsa Iarmohammadi, who, together with her husband, Manoochehr Malakooty runs the Touran enterprice, providing water pipes powered by solar energy in Georgia. They hope that in the future, the solar water pump system could replace the diesel-fuelled generators which pollute the air with carbon dioxide emissions.
Reducing carbon dioxide emissions is an important step in the global attempts to deal with the growing threat of climate change. The shift from climate-damaging fossil fuels toward renewable forms of energy is definitely a part of the solution to the world-wideenvironmental crisis. Renewable sources of energy, such as bio and hydro powers, geothermal, wind, and marine powers, or solar power do not pollute the air with carbon dioxide and have the potential to provide affordable energy access.
