Mangoo product comparison: Solar water pumps

When it comes to productive use of solar energy, solar water pumps are becoming increasingly important. Thanks to modern, energy-efficient technology, their use is of particular economic interest to small farmers: with solar water pumps, the available water can be used more efficiently and, at the same time, the harvest yield can be significantly increased.

Mangoo Marketplace has compared the three leading pumps in the East African market for you:

Futurepump: SF2 Ennos: Sunlight SunCulture: Rainmaker I
