In a Small Moroccan Village, Water Pumps are Powered by the Sun

In the Moroccan village of Tafoughalt, nestled in the Rif mountains, solar power has changed the lives of some 450 farmers. Their groundwater pumps are now powered by electricity generated locally using photovoltaic panels. In the past, the pumps ran on diesel, which cost much more. Rainwater harvesting has also contributed to the village's energy transition, limiting rural migration.
