Solar Water Pump working model for school project. A solar-powered pump is a pump running on electricity generated by photovoltaic panels or the thermal energy available from collected sunlight as opposed to grid electricity or diesel run water pumps. The operation of solar powered pumps is more economical mainly due to the lower operation and maintenance costs. Solar pumps are useful where grid electricity is unavailable and alternative sources (in particular wind) do not provide sufficient energy. Solar water pumps are specially designed to lift water for irrigation, horticulture farms, gardens, drinking and other similar applications. These solar powered water pumps are best alternatives for areas where there is no electricity or scarcity of power supply. Easy Photovoltaic’s solar water pump systems can be easily installed and requires minimum maintenance.
