Abstract of the thesis:

Irrigation activities utilize an enormous amount of water supply thereby demanding a deal of energy consumption with its attendant impacts on the cost of food production. This thesis presents Technical, and Financial Appraisal of Solar Powered Irrigation with Remote Monitoring and Management System in Nigeria. Solar powered water supply is a reliable and environmentally sustainable means of providing a power supply for irrigation operations as it is already competitive with a diesel generator and applicable where grid connection is not available especially in rural areas or unreliable in most cases.
