Small Scale Pumping Systems
Thanks to low operating costs and unsurpassed reliability, solar pumps have become an attractive solution for small and medium scale water supplies in remote areas.
- remote villages and residences
- livestock watering
- small scale irrigation
There is a natural relation between the availability of solar power and water requirement. The water requirement grows during periods of hot weather when the sun shines most brightly and the output of the solar array is at a maximum, whereas the water requirement will decrease in the season when the weather is cool and the sunlight is less intense. The water can be pumped during the day and be stored in a tank. Water is then available at night and during cloudy periods. The possibility of storing the pumped water eliminates the need for batteries in the system.
