Can You Run A Water Pump on An AC Module?
What do you think about running a water pump on the Grid Connected AC Module? There are two common purposes of installing water pumps – one for homes and another for agriculture. As per trends, we observe that many hand pumps in homes and public places have been replaced by water pumps (Submersible Pump or Tullu Pump). As per discussion with many homeowners, they are generally using ½ HP, 1 HP, 3 HP motors as per their needs. We know that an electricity bill of residential and agriculture establishments is different (residential electricity bill per unit: ~₹ 7 to 8 per unit and agriculture electricity bill per unit: ~₹ 0.10 to 0.25 per unit). In this blog, we will discuss the residential case.
As per our expert observation, 70% of homes generate electricity bills between ₹ 1500 to 2000 and these homes have average load is 1kW. About 90% of homeowners are already using inverter and battery for power backup. They are finding a solution to reduce their electricity bills. Some homeowners install high-efficiency dc solar panels (known as mono panel) with the latest technology solar charge controller (known as mppt) and they generally run home appliances on solar power during the day and on battery during the night. In case of low battery, appliances run automatically on grid power. These types of solar consumers are happy and are saving their electricity bills by up to 50% monthly. But this solution has some limitations when homeowners want to run Water Pump, Air Conditioner, Geyser or Room Heater. What would be the next solution to this situation?
Loom Solar has launched new technology premium PV modules, called AC Module. It is a Grid Connected Solar System which is used for reducing electricity bills. It has many advantages that make it different from an ordinary grid-connected solar system.
- It is an expandable
- Net Meter is optional
- It has panel level performance monitoring
- It is safer than the traditional grid-connected system,
- It has a partial shadow impact.

In this blog, we come on the main point now – Can You Run A Water Pump on an AC Module?
Yes, you heard it right! Loom Solar has recently installed an AC Module for a Water Pump in Jhunjhunu, Rajasthan. Nilesh Jangir is the solar influencer in Udaipur city who is making people aware of solar energy through his Solarable YouTube channel. He went to our solar consumer resident, Kaloli, Jhunjhunu in Rajasthan, where he captured the feedback from both the homeowner (M/S. Sarta Devi) and installer (Nand Kishor, Authorized Partner of Loom Solar), so watch this video here.
