This study described the profitability of the National Irrigation Administration- Upper Pampanga River Integrated Irrigation Systems NIA-UPRIIS´┐Ż newly inaugurated solar-powered pumps in the Philippines. The researchers utilized the descriptive research design using the questionnaire technique to gather the necessary information. Engineers from NIA-UPRIIS Division IV were the respondents of the study. The researchers discovered that the project was profitable with cumulative estimated savings of Php 277,028,649.18. Moreover, the project resulted in reduced noise pollution which would have been generated by diesel fuel-fed generators. This has also reduced the gas emission from using the conventional method. The researchers suggest that more solar-powered projects be installed by the said agency in all its irrigation projects as this would result in big savings, while sparing some funds which can be used for other purposes.
