Solar Powered Pump System

Solar Powered Pump An off-grid solar power system allows you to install and operate a pump in locations where a traditional 120VAC wired power source may be impractical, expensive or not available. Solar power systems can be the perfect solution for saving money powering pumps in remote locations.

An solar powered pump is a pump used for providing water to a remote section of land. This may be for aesthetic reasons, such as making sure a patch of grass stays healthy, or may be used on a farm, where a healthy crop depends on irrigation. There are several major types of solar pumps. Depending on the solar system needed, and the overall purpose, the individual must choose a solar powered pump that suits the intended application.

There are many different ways a solar powered pump can be used to get water from one remote location to another. These include solar powered displacement pumps, solar powered submersible pumps, turbine pumps and centrifugal pumps. The solar powered centrifugal irrigation pump is the most common.

Solar Powered Pump System

A solar power system for a pump consists of a solar module, a solar charge controller, a rechargeable solar deep-cycle battery, power converter, regulator or inverter and a weather-proof outdoor enclosure. This system is used to collect solar energy and the store electrical power, and then convert the stored power into the correct voltage to operate the pump.

What Size Solar Power System For A Pump?

Solar Pump System To select the correct size solar power system to power a pump there are a few things that must be known.

1. What is operating voltage and power consumption in amps, or watts of the pump?

2. How many hours each day will the pump be required to operate.

3. What is the geographical location the solar powered pump will be installed.

4. How many days of battery reserve power are desired for "no sun" days?
