Solar Water Pump
Solar water pump pumps water using the energy of the sun. It consists of an electrical pump system in which the electricity is provided by one or more PV panels types of solar panels. A typical solar powered pumping system is made up of solar panels that powers an electric motor, which in turn power a bore or surface pump.
Typical uses for solar pumps include:Fountain pumps/Pool pumps/Transfer pumps/Circulation pumps in ponds/Providing water for livestock/Irrigation pumps/Home pumps
There are two main types of solar pumps:
1) Surface solar water pumps – these sets above ground and move water through pipes. They are handy for moving large quantities of water at a slow pace and are commonly found on farms or large irrigation systems where water needs to be moved from a lake or other body to fields or landscaping.
2) Submersible solar water pumps – These are installed underground, but the solar panels are connected above ground. The pumps are used to move water from inside wells to the surface.
There are also a number of advantages to using solar water pumps:Low Operating Costs/Low Maintenance/Simple yet highly reliable/Eco Friendly/Economical
Solar pumps are a great alternative to the conventional method of pumping water.
