A solar water pump has a mini power house at its heart and consists of a calibrated and matching solar power array of modules tuned with the equivalent power of pump for that particular application. A solar water pump system is capable of running all types of electrical water pumps with applications varying from watering to household demands.
Irrigation pumps such as submersible, surface or deep well can also be coupled with drip watering systems to enhance the returns from this configuration.
A typical solar water pump system is known by the sum total of solar power array size that is required to run the attached pump. A 1000 Wp solar power water pump is capable of drawing and moving approximately 40,000 litres of water per day from a source that is up to 10 meters deep.
This is sufficient to irrigate about 2 acres of land with regular crops. A 1000 Wp solar power water pump helps save up to Rs 45,000 when compared to equivalent use of a diesel-operated pump over a year.
