Implementing Solar Irrigation Sustainably
In an effort to provide states with technical support on the implementation of PM KUSUM scheme across its three components, TERI, IISD, CEEW, ISEP and GIZ in cooperation with the Ministry of New and Renewable Resources have developed a guidebook for ‘Implementing Solar Irrigation Sustainably’.

The guidebook provides concrete recommendations on how state officials can deploy standalone solar pumps ensuring both social and environmental sustainability. It also works towards answering questions on how schemes like PM KUSUM can maximize benefits for low-income farmers while minimizing risks of over-withdrawal of groundwater.
