Solar water pumping system is a perfect low cost solution to produce electricity to run water pumps. It helps farmers in Kenya with continuous power to water their crops in fields and farms during the day. With low maintenance cost and very long life, this also helps houses, communities and commercial establishments to pump water from boreholes, open-well, sump and other sources to their fields and tanks.
A solar powered pump is a pump running on the power of the sun. It makes efficient use of solar energy and converts it into electrical energy for pumping water to great heights. A solar powered pump can be very environmentally friendly and economical in its operation. This system operates on power generated using solar PV (photovoltaic) system. The photovoltaic array converts the solar energy into electricity, which is used for running the motor pump set. The pumping system draws water from the open wells, boreholes, ponds etc. The water pumping system can be used to irrigate land, when the water is to be pumped from a depth of well or a pond
Solar water pumping systems, can work with or without electricity from the main grid. The design makes it highly reliable and its rugged build makes it highly durable for a long running life.
Water pumping for organic farming, sprinkler system or drip irrigation. Pump water from bore well, open wells, ponds etc to community tanks, over head tanks, treatment plants etc.
No diesel required to generate electricity, hence a huge savings on expensive diesel cost. Low maintenance, with just cleaning of dust from solar panels. No pollution, hence healthier crop yield.
