Seeing that we are going to have more water than sun, I came across a non-electric, non-solar water pumping system called the Flemming Hydro-Ram (The Ram Company). Its simplicity at its most elegant!

There was a lot of information on this in the Shuttlesworth Mother Earth News magazines in the early 70's, and some others now. You can actually build your own ram from plumbing parts if you know how.
