Solar Pump Kits
Solar Pumping is all about using energy from the sun to get water from point A (a well or spring) to point B (a holding tank). Our kits include everything you need to do just that.
We often design solar pumping systems to run PV direct. That is, the pump is connected directly to the photovoltaic (PV) modules with no batteries involved in the system. The electrical to chemical conversion in a battery isn’t 100% efficient. When we avoid batteries and deliver the energy directly to the pump, 20%-25% more water gets pumped. This kind of system is ideal when the water is being pumped into a large storage tank or is being used immediately for irrigation. It also saves the initial cost of the batteries, the maintenance and periodic replacement they require, and the charge controllers and the fusing/safety equipment that they demand. PV-direct pumping systems, which are designed to run all day long, make the most of your PV investment and help us get around the lower gallon-per-minute output of most positive displacement pumps.
