The increase in scarcity and inadequate energy supply, in Nigeria, has led to towards looking for alternative source of portable and sustainable energy supply. As a result of this, renewable energy, has been used, to ensure consistent water supply mostly in remote areas. The generation, transmission and distribution, as related to hydro engineering technology, about 12 towns in Udi Local Government, Enugu, Nigeria , recently are the beneficiaries of the recent renewable energy project, on rehabilitation and construction of motorised solar boreholes, street lights etc. through the Federal Government Sustainable Development Goal (SDG). The recent technique on Renewable Solar Inverter (RSI) with accessories, were introduced to enhance and sustain most of the rehabilitated boreholes, with appropriate solar panel of about 200 watts each, on any existing submersible pump, while Grundfos SQ Flex 2.5 - 2 solar powered submersible pump with accessories were much relevant in construction 0f new water scheme project, in line with recommendations. Other necessary pre drilling and post drilling exercise were implemented, to confirm the Aquifer test. The recent technology in renewable energy has enhanced and sustained, water management system, mostly in the rural and urban cities in Nigeria.
