Jalgoy

2021 || Kenya

Jalgoy was designed as a system that lowers the barriers to entry into solar irrigation for small plot farmers and builds them a pathway to financial stability and energy independence.

The work I conducted for this project focused on:

  • Ecosystem mapping for solar powered irrigation products, focusing but not limited to small plot farmers in East Africa.

  • Identifying barriers to the adoption of solar-powered irrigation technologies by current KickStart clients and beyond.
