What is a Solar Pump?
A Solar Water Pump has PV Panels that convert solar energy into electricity that drives motors and Pumps. Thus, water from a Well, River, Lake or Tube well can be drawn / circulated using solar energy.
Why Solar Pump?
With Solar pumps, a farmer can cultivate 3 Crops a year, which earlier was not possible because of lack of power availability or costlier operation through diesel. Solar pumps enable crop irrigation during daytime because they make food from sunlight, CO2 and water. Water given night anyway gets wasted, other benefits are:
How does a Solar Pump work?
- One time investment delivers profits year after year for long life
- Freedom from unreliable grid power or diesel / kerosene driven pumps
- No motor burnouts / transformer burnouts
- Zero running cost, as sunlight is free (only protection & cleaning of solar panels required)
- No pollution of air (carbon emission free pump), water or sound
- Easy to operate in remote areas too
Solar pumps operate using three main components. Solar Photo voltaic (SPV) modules collect the sun’s rays and convert them into usable electricity. These Solar Photo voltaic modules are usually covered in silicon or another semiconductor material that produces direct electricity. Wiring moves the electricity from the Solar Photo voltaic modules to the pump and the Pump does the work of moving the water. As sun rises, intensity in sunlight slowly increases and starts driving a pump say 1-2 hours after sunrise. Current and pump flow increase from morning to noon and then decrease from noon to evening.
How to select a Solar water Pump?
To select the most suitable solar pump model to fulfill your need / application, we need from you :
- Total daily water need in liters / day for your applications
- Vertical distance / depth / height through which water is to be raised in meters or feet
- Total pipeline length (in meter or feet) from pump discharge to water delivery point and pipe diameter (mm)
- If water is entering any drip / sprinkler / filter system which needs minimum pressure to work satisfactorily?
- If yes, how much?
- At which Location Solar Pump install? (The location is important because solar energy varies from region to region, and sizing of solar panels depends on the solar energy of a region.)
Do share the above data with us so that we select just the right pump model for you. That will make your investment smart and you happy!
What does Solar Pumping system consist of?
Why Ethics Solar Pump?
- Solar PV Modules & Mounting structure with double axis manual tracking & Anti-theft nuts
- Solar Pump Motor set with Controller (DC / AC)
- Suitable engineered pipes, cable & Accessories complete with Earthing Kit & Switches
- Strong and stable foundation for lasting longer
- Site survey for appropriate pump selection
- Installation / commissioning & training to use solar pump
Ethics Solar pump have better hydraulic impeller and casting/diffuser designs and sheet metal stainless steel parts for smooth hydraulic passages which ensure higher efficiency in pumps. Ethics Solar motors are specially designed for high efficiency and long life. That is why we give more discharge than other solar pumps of same rating. An ordinary solar pump is not as efficient as Ethics Solar Pump. An ordinary solar pumps start late after sunrise and shut early or require more solar PV panels, to deliver the same water as Ethics Solar Pump. Ethics Product is also more reliable & more durable than others and are built for long life. It is backed by authorized service centers all around the country, where trained technicians handle service quickly and efficiently.
