Our proposed station called "Rural Electric Water Sanitary Station" aims to promote low carbon and energy saving technologies in rural farming areas. Our system consists of 1) renewable energy generator for pumping river/lake water and for electricity charging of cellphone, 2) clean water supply system to supply clean water for local areas, 3) drip irrigation system for water saving and efficient farming, and 4) compost toilet for improving hygiene environment for people in local areas.
Our proposed station has the following 3 advantages:
1. Low cost
Comparing to the conventional utility facilities, this proposed station would cost relatively cheaper and would take shorter time when installing to the areas where infrastructure is not improved enough. Because of the technological nature of renewable power, lifecycle cost would be lower and there is no need to purchase coagulant and/or filter to operate water purification.
2. Easy installation and maintenance
We will provide one day training for local residents to study how to install and maintain the station. Our proposed station is designed for simple and easy installation and maintenance.
Our proposed station can be easily expanded to remote areas.
Renewable energy generator can generate 6kW (2,190kWh/year).
Clean water supply system can provide clean water for 800- 1,200 people for 8,000l/day.
Drip irrigation system can cover the farming size from 100 to 2,000sqm.
Compost toilet can improve hygiene environment and compost.
Technical maturity / Past record of introduction
The development model of clean water supply system has been sold since 2003 and so far 8 units have been installed in 6 different countries in Asia. Since 2010, the current model (YCW-008) has been installed in the following countries: 4 units in Indonesia (1unit is powered by PV), 1 unit in Senegal (powered by PV), and 1 unit in Mauritania (powered by PV). Regarding renewable energy generator, drip irrigation system, and compost toilet, we are continuously aiming to provide suitable equipment to various areas by considering regional conditions and environment.
Water scarcity: the quality of water could fluctuate and could accidentally be worsen due to climate circumstances.
Security risk: because solar panel and water pump are expensive items, they could be stolen.
To avoid risks mentioned above, we will train and inform local users and residents to continuously monitor climate circumstances and conduct prevention measure for theft.

Modality of business transaction
We will firstly conduct an extensive study regarding technology transfer of our clean water supply system and aim to build up the specific technology transfer knowhow. By considering certain conditions, we will provide a distributorship to local sales agencies/companies for local sales. After we make sure a good sales progress, we will then provide a technical assistance to our future partner company, with an agreement, in order to establish manufacturing base in local areas.
Export of product
We will procure necessary equipment for exporting to your country. These equipment include renewable energy generator, drip irrigation system, and compost toilet.
