Solar Water Pumping

Solar Water Pumping

A solar-powered pump is a pump running on electricity generated by photovoltaic panels. The operation of solar water pump is more economical mainly due to the lower operation and maintenance costs and has no environmental impact than pumps powered by an internal combustion engine (ICE). Solar pumps are useful where grid electricity is unavailable.

Aphotovoltaic solar powered pump system has three main parts (The pump, Power inverter, Solar panels) The solar panels make (up to 80%) of the system cost. The size of the PV-system is directly dependent on the size of the pump, the amount of water that is required and the solar irradiance available.

The benefits of solar water pump:

  • They are more convenient.
  • Low maintenance.
  • Easy installation.
  • Very long life.
