With low operating costs and unmatched reliability, solar pumps have become an attractive solution for the water supply to small and medium scale in remote areas.
- Populations and remote housing
- Water supply for cattle
- Small scale irrigation
There is a natural relationship between the availability of solar energy and water needs. The need for water is greater during hot periods when the sun shines with more strength and performance of the solar array is full, while the need for water is reduced by the time the weather is cool and light the less intense sun.
Water may be pumped during the day and stored in a tank. Thus, there will be water available at night and during cloudy periods. The ability to store the pumped water eliminates the need for batteries in the system.
