Nhimbe Fresh - Water Pumps | 1.02 MW Solar + 2.375 MWh Storage | Marondera, Zimbabwe


Following the success of the first Nhimbe Fresh crowdsale, the second phase of the Nhimbe Fresh solar project will power the farm’s water pump sites.

Nhimbe Fresh is an agriculture leader in Marondera, Zimbabwe, that supplies the world’s supermarkets with berries, stone fruit and vegetables. An uninterrupted power supply is critical for its irrigation systems.

Thanks to Zimbabwe’s annual rains and fertile soils, agriculture is an important part of its economy. However, ensuring adequate water supply remains a major challenge for farmers, as it requires a reliable energy source.

For this solar project, we will build one large central solar array that will power pump sites distributed across the farm. Nhimbe Fresh will be able to maintain the quality of its product through a consistent and reliable solar-powered water supply.

By buying solar cells in this project you reduce your carbon footprint and support Nhimbe Fresh in growing as an environmentally and socially sustainable business. You also contribute to the sustainable development of Sub-Saharan African economies, which heavily rely on agriculture.
