What is Solar Water Pumping?
A solar water pumping system has solar PV panels that convert solar energy into electricity that drives a pump or a motor, making it possible for water from a well, a river, a lake or well to be drawn or circulat- ed using solar energy.
Why Solar Water pumps?
With a solar water pump, a farmer can cultivate 3 crops a year which previously was not possible because of unavailability of power or costly operations through diesel. Solar water pumps enable crop irrigation during daytime because that is the time crops make food from sunlight.
