Breakeven periods generator vs solar pumping

| Answered by

In your life cycle cost analysis , what the justification on the difference on the break even period for different countries? why is just 1 year in Uganda and 5.1 years in Iraq?

These analyses depend on the size of systems, the number of pumping hours and the like and not all systems analyzed in different countries were of the same size. You can find those details in our country visit reports at

The case of Iraq (the largest breakdown of those shown in the webinar) is largely influenced by the fact that the price of diesel is one of the lowest in the world and grid access was present in some locations, a big difference with Uganda (expensive diesel and off grid areas).
