Description


Water pumping is a big job. Solar electric (PV) powered water pumps are the most effective way to pump your Deep Well, or shallow pond, river, lake or stream with high performance, reliability, and no fuel-costs. Is your Well, Pond, or Lake at a remote site? Solar electric photovoltaic (PV) panels, at historic low prices, lower costs and can be your water pumping solution. Water your livestock, irrigate your orchards, gardens, fields, or farmlands with this Easy Step-by-Step Guide complete with specific examples of water pumping equipment for different situations. Pump water from your well, or shallow surface source directly with Solar PV panels. Size your solar water pumping system with this Step-by-Step Guide to defining, and building your solar water pumping project. Solar water pumping systems include solar PV panels, a controller, and the Pump itself. The examples included in this book match the model pump, with the solar power supply required to produce a given average water production per day.
