In 1998, Big Country Electric Cooperative began offering solar water pumping systems to its members. Two 75-watt DC solar panels are used on each standard system. The solar water pumping systems can be leased or sold to provide livestock water delivery where electrical power is either not available or not economically feasible. The selling price is approximately $2,750 or they can be leased for $50 per month for a 60-month term, with the first and last month paid up front. Currently, there are approximately 50 completed installations.
