For more than 10 years, Water Mission has been utilizing solar-powered water pumping to bring reliable safe water access to remote communities around the world.
Our experience and industry research have demonstrated that solar pumping solutions are both cost-effective and sustainable in the long term, offering technical and environmental advantages to communities.
But it can be challenging to get started. When solar-powered water systems fail, it’s primarily due to poor design and installation. This lack of technical expertise has been a barrier in adopting solar powered pumping solutions for many non-governmental organizations (NGOs).
Community members stand near a solar-powered safe water project in VIlla Maria, Indiana, Peru.
To bridge this gap, Water Mission recently partnered ... Read More

Clean, safe water is a basic need that many of us take for granted. Yet 2.2 billion people, almost one-third of the world’s population, lack safe drinking water. At Water Mission, we exist to bring an end to the global water crisis. We hold ourselves to the highest technical standards. Regardless of where we work, our team of engineering experts use best-in-class technology and products to ensure excellence in our outcomes. Our team works directly with the local community to create sustainable solutions and ensure each community is empowered to maintain and manage every ... Read More
Seventeen months ago, Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico. It was the most destructive storm to hit the island in more than 80 years, and it made a devastating impact on safe water, power, and health care services.
Although it’s been over a year, you have not forgotten Puerto Rico. Your ongoing and generous support has enabled us to continue partnering with rural communities to provide long-term, sustainable safe water solutions utilizing solar power.
In the aftermath of the hurricane, Water Mission installed generators in rural communities to deliver temporary power for their water systems. With your generosity and the support of corporate ... Read More
Solar pumping is the trendiest technology in rural water supply today. Much of the interest in solar pumping is motivated by the Sustainable Development Goal to increase water service levels in the most remote areas. A more compelling driver is that rural water users are willing to pay for service that is accessible near or within their homes. There is currently no more promising technology for meeting these expectations in off-grid settings than solar pumping.
Despite this high interest and the fact that solar pumping technology has been around for decades, a great deal of misinformation is being ... Read More
In early June, Water Mission shipped 780 solar panels to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, as part of the world’s largest solar-powered, safe water treatment project. Our massive project will serve over 250,000 Congolese and Burundian people living in three refugee settlements in Western Tanzania.
The SolarWorld panels specified for the massive-scale engineering project are critical for the long-term success and operation of the installed systems that will keep safe water flowing for the refugees.
