Solar Water Pumps

A solar water pump system is essentially an electrical pump system in which the electricity is provided by one or several Photovoltaic (PV) panels. A typical solar powered pumping system consists of a solar panel array that powers an electric motor, which in turn powers a bore or surface pump. The water is often pumped from the ground or stream into a storage tank that provides a gravity feed, so energy storage is not needed for these systems.
