Solar Water Pump

Solar Water Pump is a water pump which using solar energy.

Technology and equipment to water pumping has available and easy to obtain. However, in certain areas the availability of pumping propulsion is often a barrier in the absence of electricity network. Solar PV systems are used to pump water for livestock, plants or humans. Since the need for water is greatest on hot sunny days the technology is an obvious choice for this application. Pumping water using PV technology is simple, reliable, and requires almost no maintenance.

A typical solar powered pumping system consists of a solar panel array that powers an electric motor, which in turn powers a bore or surface pump. The water is often pumped from the ground or stream into a storage tank that provides a gravity feed, so energy storage is not needed for these systems. PV powered pumping systems are cost-effective alternative to agricultural wind turbines for remote area water supply.
