Pankshin Water Project
The Dene II community of Pankshin LGA in Plateau State now has a solar motorized borehole, which was constructed in early 2017 by a group of highly skilled Energy and Water Resource Engineers working for Electric City Energy LTD, a member of the Vanguard Energy Trade and Logistics consortium.
The contract was awarded by the Federal Ministry of Water Resources in December 2016 under its borehole scheme for rural communities.
The work included erecting a large overhead tank on a tower, and installing solar panels to provide round the clock electricity to power the water pump attached to the borehole.
