    The objective is to switch from individual diesel and electrical pumps for irrigation to solar pumping in Jordan Valley. Also, this NAMA aims to promote efficient water use.

    Activities: (Error: Invalid time.
    4 mechanisms are proposed to be tested in the pilot phase: Concessional loan to farmers (0% interest rate - 15 years); Blended solution (60% grant + 40% loans); RESCOs with lease payments (50% of the energy bill in base line); RESCO with power tariff payments (50% of the energy bill in base line).
