This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Plumbing.

In this Badge Bit, you will install a solar water pump. This BB can be done in combo with its electricity BB counterpart.  (Note that this BB is part of a 1-part choose your own adventure list BB called the Big List. You must complete one Badge Bit in the Big List.)
