Lately, we have seen large scale and rapid adoption of solar powered water pumps in the agriculture sector in India. Solar powered water pumps,as the name suggests, use solar energy to run. These solar powered water pumps are extremely cost-effective, durable, easy to install and require minimum maintenance when compared to the normal water pumps. The life of an installed pump can be as long as 20 years. These systems are best alternatives in areas where there is no electricity or reliable supply is not available.
In this article, we will be focusing on using solar powered water pumps for residential purposes.
What is the need of Solar Powered Water Pumps?
As per our consumer interactions, there are top 3 reasons behind it, such as:
i) 100% Grid Dependency - Today pumps are dependent largely on the grid. If there is a power cut the pumps will not work. This can bring the whole household to a standstill.
ii) Timely Schedule - Since you can freely use the solar power during day time and stored power at a time when there is no daylight, you can practically work 24*7 using a solar powered water pump, as opposed to a conventional water pump.
iii) ~95% of Hand pumps are now obsolete - Hence you will require some kind of force/ energy to draw underground water for your household chores.
What is solution of this?
i) In houses - If your water motor is ½ Hp, you can easily use a 2 kw off-grid solar system,
and ii) If the water motor is 1 Hp you can use 3 kw solar system to run the same.
