SOLAR WATER PUMPING
Are you about to implement a water pumping or irrigation project? here are the reasons as to why you should consider solar water pumping.
Solar water pumping systems operate on power generated using solar PV (photovoltaic) panels to run water pumps. The photovoltaic panels convert solar energy into electricity which runs the water motor pump. These systems are able to pump water from both surface and underground water sources.
Solar-powered water pumping systems are emerging as the better option options when compared to electric or engine powered systems. These systems are useful in agriculture, recreational, residential and industrial applications. They are mostly applicable in irrigation, animal watering, fish farming, industrial and domestic water supply.
Why you should consider solar water pumping;
- Low Cost: Solar powered systems run on free energy from the sun. They also require little or no running costs when compared to the other options. Engine-powered systems require regular filling up of fuel while the electric-powered systems incur electric bills that have to be paid regularly. The ever-reducing cost of solar technologies is making solar systems more affordable every other day. Whereas the initial cost might be higher than the electric or diesel-powered system, solar water pumping systems have the shortest payback period.
2. Low maintenance: Apart from the routine cleaning of solar panels, no other major maintenance is required. Engine-powered water pumping systems require regular servicing which makes their maintenance and operation cost relatively high.
3. Environmentally friendly: In this era of climate change, energy sources that are clean and renewable should be given the highest priority. With engine powered water pumping systems, there is the combustion of fossil fuels and noise which leads to environmental pollution.
4. Highly reliable: Solar powered systems are the most reliable and appropriate for remote areas where the electric supply is not stable. With reduced dependence on electricity and fuel, issues like power cuts, low voltage, increased fuel costs do not affect the functioning of solar systems. So long as the sun shines, the water will always flow.
