Kandi CMI project (Community Micro Irrigation) is a unique type of irrigation project where solar PV energy is being used for pumping water from a canal to irrigate area under command with micro irrigation either by sprinkler or drip irrigation. This is going to be the largest of its type. Canal water is lifted with solar pumps. HDPE pipes are being used for rising main PVC pipes for distribution network for 1642 Acres of command area.
