Mr. Abhinav Rajeev, & Ms. Swetha Prabhakar lead the team of 26 members. The project aimed at installing a 3000W

Solar-Powered Water pump capable of filling up a 4000L water tank at the location of Lakshamveed Colony in Manjapra GramaPanchayath, Angamaly. The region was facing extreme hardships in availing water for their daily needs since they did not have access to water resources anywhere near their residential area. By this Project, we were able to supply the 26 families consisting of nearly 200 residents of the area with clean water. The primary stakeholders of the project are the vulnerable working category of Manjapra Panchayat. The team for execution has IEEE PES Student Community, PES YP Kerala, IEEE PES WiP Community, IEEE Senior member, Local Government representatives, etc.

The team of 26 members was divided into four Snippets – Plumbing, Pumping, Electrical, and Control specialized in their respective fields in software and practical implementation. With the 4-months of training, meetings,optimization,and development the team was able to overcome every single odds encountered in the project.
